Abstract
This document is the final report for Contract Serial No. W7702-0-R186/01-XSG entitled "Development of a Preview Control System for the Defence Research Establishment Suffield Active Suspension Research Vehicle". The work was sponsored by the Defence Research Establishment Suffield (DRES) with D.M. Hanna as the Scientific Authority at DRES. A previous contract between DRES and Queen's University had produce a working prototype of an active suspension mounted on a Canadian Forces Iltis 1/4 ton utility vehicle. The goal of this contract was to develop a "preview control" system capable of determining the profile of the ground ahead of the vehicle and feeding this information back to the active suspension system in order to improve its ability to enhance vehicle ride and handling performance. The preview system has been designed, built, installed and delivered to DRES for further testing. The details of the system are described in companion reports which are referred to in the body of this report.
