Paper Abstract

A mirror mount for adjusting and holding half-inch diameter optics is described. The intended environment for the mount is that of flight Military Lasers. This operational environment includes varying static and dynamic loading, temperatures, and pressures. The mount is angle adjustable in two orthogonal directions, though is not a true gimbal mount. Its most unique characteristics are small package size, locking features that do not impose crosstalk on the adjusted position, and extreme ruggedness and stability over the stated environment. Design and performance information is presented.
