Many electro-optical systems rely on a pointable line-of-sight for their operation. Thirty-one pointed optics are described along with their associated characteristics. The design impact of these characteristics is discussed qualitatively to provide some guidance in selection of an appropriate gimbal type. Each of the gimbals described is illustrated to show the general configuration.
