Abstract
A low-cost single-axis pointing control system is currently being developed for the CIRRIS-82 Space Shuttle Program. This system is essentially self-contained and requires a minimum of interfacing with the host vehicle to perform the rudimentary step-hold maneuver patterns. A more advanced two-axis system is designed for future CIRRIS missions to perform more complex stare and scan maneuvers. Both systems use a microprocessor controller.
