Abstract
We discuss several concepts to keep track of small relative angular motions between a reference point and a remote platform when the two are located at separate points on a flexible structure. The goal is to accurately transfer knowledge of the orientation of the remote platform relative to the reference point. First-order equations and order-of-magnitude calculations are presented for image centroiding and interference fringe projection approaches for space station applications.
