About Line of Sight…
Line of Sight (LOS) control addresses the problem of stabilizing a sensor’s aimpoint
The line of sight is the vector between the sensor and a target. Passive or active track sensors mounted on a mobile platform usually require some form of control to stabilize the pointing vector along the line of sight. The control problem can be divided into two parts; tracking and disturbance rejection. The track servo loop uses the track sensor to minimize kinematic-induced pointing error relative to a target. An inner inertial referenced servo loop provides platform disturbance suppression, stabilizing the LOS. Control methods that address the stabilization control problem are often referred to as LOS stabilization. The disturbance phenomenology and compensation techniques impacting LOS stabilization performance cover a wide range of topics. This book provides an overview of critical areas that should be addressed, discusses a methodology for LOS stabilization system design, and identifies algorithms essential for analyzing stabilization dynamics.
