We describe a mathematical model developed for the adaptive control system of the composite primary mirror of a telescope similar in characteristics to the international project of the Millimetron space telescope. Results of numerical simulation of the adaptive control system with allowance for restrictions of the hardware–software implementation are presented. According to results of the simulation, the error of maintaining the shape of the composite primary mirror is estimated. The estimate corroborates the applicability of the mathematical model.
