Gimbal or other stable platforms have structures that move according to its functions. This is for the purpose of keeping track of the goals to the fullest. Tracking targets can become difficult as the subject moves further and further away and they are out of the gimbal’s allowable viewing range. Besides, under the influence of noise signals form outside space, it becomes even more difficult to observe the gimbal’s targets. To overcome above disadvantages, this paper is presented an adjustment method to limit above risks. Adjusting Linear Quadratic Gaussian (LQG) for expensive gimbal systems, noise signals are processed purely by Kalman filters to improve the function of observing targets. In addition, proportional- integral-derivative (PID) controller, artificial neural network in this case is also considered to verify the effectiveness of  control methods listed below. In particular, ANN is the most effective control method today to deal with unwanted signals. These unwanted signals can cause worsening conditions during the operation of systems.Therefore, artificial network (ANN) is a solution to information and communication security problems. Simulation is done by Matlab. Novelty of the work: no previous research has been published for this  genre. The study of this genre with the use of artificial intelligence is suggestive of the study of artificial intellligence technologies at a higher level. This category is also a suggestion for studying a smoother control method based on existing data.
