Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes the technical background and analysis relevant to the performance verification of high-performance airborne telescopes usually operating in the IR spectrum. The purpose of this paper is to communicate an understanding of the state-of-the-art in control systems and performance prediction methodology relevant to ultra-high accuracy optical platforms. This introduction reviews the general control requirements of such systems the motivation for the analysis, the genesis of the techniques used, and summarizes the conclusions of the paper.
