Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the design of a passive isolation system for a high-altitude, long-range oblique reconnaissance camera. The passive isolation system works in conjunction with the active, gyro-stabilized system to attenuate a broad spectrum of vibratory inputs. This paper does not discuss the analytical mechanics applied to the design of the isolation system; that is covered in many texts, some of which are included in the bibliography. It does discuss a design approach, presents mathematical equations and definitions in support of that approach and exhibits some pertinent data.
