The inertial stabilization system is to stabilize the sensor’s line-of-sight (LOS) toward the target by isolating the sensor from body disturbances. Modeling of the electromechanical system intended to achieve the optimized control parameters of two-axis inertially stabilized platform system (ISP) by retaining high efficiency and reliability of the system. In this paper, a cross-coupled inertial block is designed to enhance the effect of mutual coupling and unbalanced mass as well as frictional model. Simulation results correlate with physical modeling specified by its CAD model. The comparative simulation results in different body rate conditions are analyzed. This shows that the proposed approach offers a better performance than the classical one.
