Tracking Radar Gimbal – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft

Tracking Radar Gimbal

In this model, the required elevation and azimuth angles are determined for a radar gimbal tracking system. This inverse kinematics problem is solved using the inverse kinematics equations generated by MapleSim. Servo drives are implemented to tune the required parameters of the tracking gimbal.

This model includes a Maple worksheet for analysis
This model was created with MapleSim 2022.1
