Paper Abstract

The accuracies required for modern tracking systems far exceed the capability of most manufacturing processes. In addition, the stability and flexure of real engineering material further limit the as-built accuracy. This paper discusses the various types of static errors which exist in tracking mounts, and the extent to which they can be modeled.
