In order to improve the inadequate firing accuracy of the existing prototype of a 30-mm caliper gun overhead weapon station, a tripleindex constrained optimization model with damper is developed with the consideration of a real-world operating environment. Furthermore, a method of deriving the characteristic parameters of the damper is proposed based on the triple indices, and the optimal damping parameters are obtained. Simulation results show that the dynamic characteristics of the

The result can be applied for the development of overhead weapon stations in the future.
