Paper Abstract

The necessary parameters required to accurately and completely specify a precision optical pointing system are discussed, and those critical to the design are investigated more fully. Attention is given to the relationship between system and component parameters such as bandwidth and disturbance rejection, pointing jitter and accuracy, and repeating accuracy. It is concluded that the specification process is complex; the requirements interweave with one another, making it difficult to deal with a single issue at a time.
