Abstract : The design and implementation of a microprocessor-based disturbance accommodating controller for the XM-97 helicopter gun-turret control system is considered. A two-state observer is used to estimate and suppress recoil induced torque disturbances associated with weapon firing. Both nonfiring and firing test results are presented. (Author)
