Abstract
A straightforward approach is presented for the design of low weight/power/cost, space-base inertial line-of-sight (LOS) stabilization systems with microradian-level residual LOS jitter and wide-angle search (WAS) capability. The system employs a strapdown pointing configuration which obviates the telescope's gimballing for WAS. The LOS is steered through large angles with a gimballed steering optical element. A fine-steering mirror furnishes low-jitter operation through the operation of servo that nests the two mechanisms electronically.
