Abstract
In all laser pointing systems, boresight and jitter are two fundamental pointing errors arising from vibrations and atmospheric turbulence. The maximum-likelihood estimation1 advanced by Deva K.borah recently can simultaneously estimate jitter and boresight. Besides some traditional qualities just like high precision and speediness, the maximum-likelihood estimation has a new quality that the performance of this estimator is different when boresight and jitter errors are different. Furthermore, the Monte Carlo simulation results demonstrate that the maximum-likelihood estimation has a higher degree of precision when boresight is bigger than jitter. According to this, a careful analysis is made and some advice is given for the readers who wish to obtain high precise results.
