This paper presents a modified output prediction procedure, and a new controller design based on the predictive control law. Also, a predictive estimator is developed for implementing the controller. The predictive controller was designed and simulated for tracking control of the NASA Deep Space Network 70-m antenna. Simulation results show significant improvement in tracking performance compared to the linear quadratic controller and estimator presently in use.
