Abstract
This paper discusses the coarse pointing assembly (CPA) requirements for the Optical Multiple Access intersatellite link system. Mechanical and optical design aspects of a periscopic CPA with azimuth and elevation angular ranges of 360 and +/- 120 deg respectively, clear aperture of 7 cm, and a step size of 0.09 deg are described. Mass budget estimates for a flight unit are presented. The total mass and maximum power consumption are 3.8 kg and 12 W respectively.
