Often the primary objective of space exploration and utilization includes in-situ measurements and observations, and then the transmission of signals back to Earth. Precision mechanical systems are necessary to help meet this objective. In the 1980s, one of the technical challenges was the control of large (up to 100 m in dimensions) and precise (sub-micron level) space structures. These challenges motivated the initiation of research in adaptronics to provide alternatives to the approach of adding hundreds, if not thousands, of sensors/actuators and their controllers in order to control the vibrations of ‘linear’ structures. Among the difficulties with the proposed Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) approach were reliability of the control system, processing demands, and the necessary accuracy of knowledge of the structural system characteristics in an operating environment in space.
