Paper Abstract

The paper describes the analysis performed and the hardware designed to simply and inexpensively implement a dither mirror control system. The design philosophy adopted was to achieve the simplest hardware, electronic, and software design possible. For that purpose, simple models of the structure and control system were developed which provided guidelines for the design, and commercially available hardware was used extensively. Testing of the assembled hardware showed that the simple design rules derived from the analyses were sufficient to describe the salient features of the system behavior; however, a small electronic modification was needed to achieve acceptable performance.
