Abstract
This paper presents an overview of the considerations which are important in Shuttle-attached pointing systems for electro-optical experiments. These considerations are described in terms of the mission characteristics which include the mission orbit, host vehicle, sensor, and target. The pointing system characteristics of interest include the pointing system configuration, tradeoffs, and interfaces. Key problem areas are discussed, and expected evolutionary pointing system improvements are outlined. The fundamental limitations which constrain the evolution of the pointing systems are also identified.
