Summary The objective of this research program is to develop and evaluate robust adaptive control techniques for accurate pointing and tracking of spacecraft with flexible appendages, external disturbances and unmodeled dynamics. Research will be focused on the application to non minimum phase systems, such as space systems with flexible appendages. This works is a continuing effort to the design of an adaptive controller which compensates for model uncertainties and flexible modes in dynamic systems.
