This brief presents a X–Y pedestal using the feedback error learning (FEL) controller with adaptive neural network for low earth orbit (LEO) satellite tracking applications. The aim of the FEL is to derive the inverse dynamic model of the X–Y pedestal. In this brief, the kinematics of X–Y pedestal is obtained. To minimize or eliminate the backlash between gears, an antibacklash gearing system with dual-drive technique is used. The X–Y pedestal is implemented and the experimental results are obtained. They verify the obtained kinematics of the X–Y pedestal, its ability to minimize backlash, and the reduction of the tracking error for LEO satellite tracking in the typical NOAA19 weather satellite. Finally, the experimental results are plotted.
