Abstract : A dynamic damping system for stabilizing the motion of a large object with respect to inertial space by adding mechanical damping to an angular positioning servo system for the object. The mechanical damping is achieved by a dynamic damper assembly which attaches to an inertial balancer that provides inertia feedback to the servo system. The dynamic damper assembly along with the inertia balancer mechanically assist the positioning servo system. (Author)
