The paper considers a line of sight (LOS) stabilization and pointing system (LSPS) based on a mirror system, which provides target tracking for horizontal and vertical pointing within 180°. A mathematical model of LSPS kinematic motion is obtained, which takes into consideration the specifics of LSPS optical system. A control method is proposed, which ensures LSPS operation under any horizontal and vertical pointing angles, and provides stability of the kinematic system. Results of MatLab modeling of the considered nonlinear system are given.
