Abstract

Gyro-mirror line-of-sight stabilization platform is a nonlinear, multivariable and highly coupled system. It forms the basis of a wide range of practical instruments used for the purposes of sighting and targeting in both surface and airborne vehicles, which is capable of maintaining the sightline of a mirror when it is subjected to external disturbances. However, a spinning gyro has a property known as precession such that when a torque is applied to one axis, it will contrary to the intuition of mechanics, and results the rotation in the direction of another axis. This behavior poses a problem in controlling the line-of-sight since movement about one axis will cause a coupled movement in the other. In this paper, an efficient full-matrix fuzzy logic controller is designed and implemented for a practical nonlinear gyro-mirror line-of-sight stabilization platform. Both simulation and real-time experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the designed full-matrix fuzzy gyroscope control system, which offers an excellent closed-loop response for the transient and tracking performances, with significant reduction in the coupling effect against cross-axis interactions.
