For space applications that need high accuracy pointing of the payload, fine pointing system is an indispensable tool. To reach high level of high accuracy pointing and tracking, proper synchronization between the attitude of the satellite and each stage of the pointing module should be considered. This study focuses on developing and demonstrating staging control for fine pointing system. Currently, an experimental model for multi-stage control has been built in the laboratory to be used as a testbed and a teaching tool to validate the control strategies. This paper gives a brief introduction of the study, experimental model design criteria and staging control strategy. An example of a controller synthesis for multi-stage actuators based on Hinfinity is also presented.
