Paper Abstract

This paper examines the specification requirements for the development of standard module scanning components to be used in conjunction with SADA I and SADA II sensor arrays. System-level design considerations are presented to identify a selection of components that is consistent with optimum use of the SADA technology. A limited-rotation electromagnetic actuator, used in conjunction with an angular position sensor and a digital controller, is shown to have the necessary performance and flexibility to perform the frame scan function for a wide range of airborne systems. System level requirements and specifications for an optional interlace scan system are also provided.
