The USAF's Advanced Space Structure Technology Research Experiment, 'ASTREX', employs a large precision-beam expander structure for the development and testing of vibration and slewing technologies. Attention is given to the test article's air-bearing system's gimballing, and the ASTREX's reaction-control, control-moment gyro, and sensor and actuator systems.
