A feedforward control based on data fusion is proposed to enhance closed-loop performance. The target trajectory as the observed value of a Kalman filter is recovered by synthesizing line-of-sight error and angular position from the encoder. A Kalman filter based on a Singer acceleration model is employed to estimate the target velocity. In this control scheme, the control stability is influenced by the bandwidth of the Kalman filter and time misalignment. The transfer function of the Kalman filter in the frequency domain is built for analyzing the closed loop stability, which shows that the Kalman filter is the major factor that affects the control stability. The feedforward control proposed here is verified through simulations and experiments. (C) 2015 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE)
