Abstract
The accuracies required for modern tracking systems far exceed the capability of most manufacturing processes. In addition, the stability and flexure of real engineering material further limit the as-built accuracy. This paper discusses the various types of static errors which exist in tracking mounts, and the extent to which they can be modeled.
