Paper Abstract

The Integrated Beam Control Demonstration (IBCD) brassboard for the Advanced Beam Control System (ABCS) rapidly directs a laser beam over a wide field of view with high precision. The pointing control system consists of four fast steering mirrors and a visible- wavelength alignment sensor, coordinated by a central computer. This paper describes the IBCD pointing control system requirements and it design, and presents the results of recent performance tests.
