Paper Abstract

There are a number of optical systems being considered for aircraft. These include communication systems, surveillance systems, and other pointing and tracking systems. The angular vibration of the vehicle is usually the primary disturbance that degrades the optical system performance. Boeing is involved in a project to measure and analyze the angular vibration of several different aircraft. This report will show a comparison of the angular vibration spectrums of large transport aircraft and smaller fighter aircraft over a range of flight conditions.
