Contract notice: nll - nimes (30) - garrigues camp - range tc08 - creation of a stabilized platform.
The inertially stabilized platform (ISP) is a key component for an aerial remote sensing system, which is used to hold and control the line of sight (LOS) of the imaging sensors keeping steady relative to the tracking object in the inertial space [1, 2].
For a high-resolution aerial remote sensing system, it needs the inertially stabilized platform (ISP) to isolate the attitude changes of an aircraft in the directions of three axes and to reject the multisource disturbances in real time whether they are inside or outside of the aircraft body; therefore, the ISP is a key component for an aerial remote sensing system, which is mainly used to hold and control the line of sight (LOS) of the imaging sensors keeping steady in the inertial space [1-5].
Chao sets up an electro-pneumatic stabilized platform driven by pneumatic muscles, and adopts an adaptive robust levelling control strategy based on the coupled MIMO system dynamics to remain balance of platform [1].
Known as the LAV Reconnaissance Surveillance Systems Upgrade Project (LRSS UP), the improvements will include a 10-metre retractable mast, an operator control station, as well as a surveillance suite with radar, thermal night/ day and image intensification sights, laser range finder and a GPS mounted on a stabilized platform, according to GDLS-Canada.
Photoelectric sensor is a device of great importance for detecting and tracking targets in semistrapdown stabilized platform [1].
Characterized by a new mount without deck penetration and a reduced radar cross-section shield, the Single Fast Forty is being marketed in three different versions, from a full CMS slaved configuration to a stand-alone, locally managed by a dedicated command and control console or man on-board the mount, configuration with or without integrated EO/IR fire control system and fully stabilized platform, with a weight ranging from 4,350 to 4,600kg with ammunition.
As our armored brigade combat teams (ABCT) increase their focus on decisive action and core competency proficiency, the ability to effectively conduct stabilized platform gunnery training is reemerging as an important training topic for combined arms battalion (CAB) leaders.
I figured, if this is a gyro stabilized platform, I don't need an encoder." Hoffman says, "I also realized that I didn't even need all of the closed-loop motion control; it's all open loop, so I was able to use a $35 scooter motor.
ZF Sachs talks about the "skyhook" effect, the idea being it's as though the car hangs from an invisible rail in the sky and the wheels hang down to meet the uneven road surface from that stabilized platform. The vehicle body is kept as calm as possible as the shocks react instantly to the road surface and driving conditions.
A main effect of automation showed that tracking performance with an automatically stabilized platform was superior to that with an unstable platform, F(1, 52) = 79.279, p [less than] .001.
