Dynamics and control of a gyroscope-stabilized platform in a self-propelled anti-aircraft system

Zbigniew Koruba, Zbigniew Dziopa, Izabela Krzysztofik
The paper presents a mathematical model of a triaxial gyroscopic platform on a moving platform base (motor vehicle). Control software platforms are designated with the inverse dynamics of the duties, while the control correction – using the LQR method. The considered platform can be used as an independent observation base for systems, cameras, parcels or gun machines. In the present study, it is shown in its application to stabilization of anti-aircraft missile launchers.
