Abstract
The Acquisition, Tracking and Pointing hardware and software for the Airborne Laser Advanced Concept Testbed (ABL-ACT) Non-Cooperative Dynamic Compensation Experiment (NoDyCE) is described. Five main components make-up the entire ABL-ACT ATP system. These systems are: a 1-meter elevation over azimuth gimbal and gimbal control system with two acquisition sensors, a dome controller, and coarse track system, a fine track system, and a mode logic control system. Each subsystem's unique functionality, hardware choice and top level software architecture will be discussed. The optical, physical and information interfaces between each of the NoDyCE ATP systems is also described, as well as a brie discussion of the NoDyCE experiment goals and the overall NoDyCE architecture.
