Paper Abstract

An experiment employing a precision pointing two-axis gimbal has been constructed to demonstrate and substantiate various aspects of precision pointing of a gimballed laser mirror. The main objective of the experiment is to demonstrate the capabilities of achieving simultaneous pointing accuracy and jitter stability requirements. Results of the experiment have shown that both typical and extreme spacecraft disturbances may be significantly attenuated by a fast servo system.
