Precision Stabilized Pointing and Tracking Systems
Inertial stabilization, pointing and tracking systems are designed to control the line-of-sight of an ever increasing array of sensors, weapons and other payloads of all sizes used in scientific, military or commercial endeavors. Typical system configurations range from simple and almost crude to some of the most intricate and precise mechanisms ever devised by humans. This course is designed to teach the student how to integrate the diverse set of multi-disciplined engineering technologies, components and system configurations required in order to insure a successful system design for a given application. Taught primarily from a systems engineering viewpoint, the course includes sufficient detail in each of the technological disciplines involved to allow the student to assess which are most applicable to his or her particular application and apply them as necessary.
