Abstract
Future laser intersatellite communication links are planned which will have beaxnwidths in the arc second range and below. The performance, and even the feasibility of such links, depends heavily upon the mechanical vibrations induced into the optical terminals by the host satellite(s). In particular, it is important to know the level of mnicrovibrations on a spacecraft for the design of the tracking control loop of an optical communication payload. An attempt to optimize the tracking con,trol loop of an optical communication payload, taking into account the different sources of pointing error, such as detector noise and mnicrovibrations, will be presented.
