Paper Abstract

Many current and future electro-optical systems employ acquisition, tracking, and pointing subsystems. The functions of these subsystems and their relationships are defined, and typical components are identified. Theoretical performance equations are presented in a tutorial fashion. Current performance levels are reviewed for ground-based, airborne, and space-based applications.
