Abstract
Many future space missions involving flexible structures for large optics may require active vibration control to satisfy mission objectives. Thus, it is important for active control of flexible structures to be practically demonstrated in ground based experiments. These experiments can validate (or invalidate) existing theories and technology and provide directions for future research. This paper discusses three experiments conducted by Harris which successfully demonstrate control of flexible structures. The paper concludes with some remarks on the lessons learned from conducting these experiments.
