Before fine tracking algorithms can be evaluated for performance at the ABL-ACT facility at North Oscura Peak, the image needs to get onto the fine track sensor. This requires interaction between the gimbal controller, course tracker, and the fine tracker. In order to develop this hardware for North Oscura Peak, and to meet the proposed schedule, a local facility was required. NuSord was developed for this purpose. In addition to supporting the buildup, NuSord will assist in the integration of future hardware and software system that would eventually end up at NOP.
