16 August 1994 High-speed tracking target simulator for fine tracking mechanisms
Author Affiliations +
We have developed a high-speed tracking target simulator and pointing direction measurement system to evaluate a tracking/pointing subsystem of an optical intersatellite link (ISL) transceiver. Developing high-precision beam tracking/pointing technology requires a more precise performance measurement system. We have been studying a tracking target simulator as a signal generator and pointing direction measurement method to evaluate a transfer function of a fine tracking/pointing subsystem. In this paper, we will describe a wide-diameter collimated beam intensified uniformly as a tracking target, and how we control the direction of it with 1 µrad in amplitude and 100 Hz in frequency.
