A sufficient rank condition for arbitrary pole assignability by static output feedback of m-input, p-output linear systems of McMillan degree n < mp is given. This condition is easy to check and is satisfied by the generic system. An effective computational method to compute the feedback laws assigning any self-conjugate set of closed-loop poles is also given.
