Abstract
Presented is a new revolutionary free-space optical communication sensor mount. Featuring 70 arcseconds average repeatability, this gimbal-like pointing mechanism provides over 180 degrees azimuth and declination singularity-free pointing capability for a wide range of sensors for the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Applications include air, sea, and space as well as land-based vehicles.
