This paper describes the initial closed-loop isolation testing of the Vibration Isolation and Suppression System (VISS) which can be used to isolate a precision payload from spacecraft borne disturbances. VISS utilizes six hybrid isolation struts in a hexapod configuration. The VISS experiment has recently been tested at the Phillips Laboratory and(More)
We present a multi-tone narrow band tracking control algorithm to isotate periodic disturbances from engineering structures. Conditions for fast convergence of control parameters are discussed. It is shown that the choice of appropriate tap delay time and number of taps is important in achieving good convergence. We implemented the algorithm in a digitat(More)
