Fine Pointing Concepts for Optical Intersatellite Links
International Conference on Space Optical Systems (ICSOS)
In this paper we present two fine pointing architectures that support high-accuracy pointing, while also featuring simplification of the small-space optical assembly hardware, reduction in the number and complexity of constituent components, full self-calibration capability, and relaxation of otherwise-strict, cost-driving subassembly requirements.
