Giant Magellan Telescope primary mirror control system

This repository provides Rust code for the GMT primary mirror (M1) controller model for end-to-end simulations.

The transfer function of the support actuator (SA) feedback controller and those representing the closed-loop dynamics of the hardpoint (HP) motions are compiled from high-level (Matlab/Simulink) model files. Those files are available in the m1-simulink-models folder.

The model has some structural model-dependent parameters. The folder calib_dt has a data file with those parameters computed assuming the model 20220610_1023_MT_mount_zen_30_m1HFN_FSM_.
