Abstract
This paper presents a automatic control system antenna alignment. The alignment is performed through an precise drive positioner and a specifically developed algorithm wich is fed with input parameters from an inertial platform in a three dimensional space. It performs the alignment of the antennas using the positioner therefore compensating when there is an unwanted movement, so that the antennas maintain the correct alignment.
