This paper will examine the estimation and control of distributed parameter systems which have application to the shape control of a large deployable communications antenna (~100 meters in diameter). Such an antenna would be collapsed and carried into orbit by the NASA space shuttle. Once in orbit, the antenna would automatically deploy like a collapsable… CONTINUE READING
