Abstract : A procedure followed in modifying a NIKE-AJAX mount for use with an optical tracking system is presented. Some aspects of the required cleanup and servicing procedure are covered, and a discussion of the complete control system design is included. Tracking errors, resulting from the servo design and mount nonlinearities, are discussed both in reference to the design, as well as in reference to the results of actual tests. An attempt has been made to keep the discussion as general as possible in order to allow maximum future use of the information obtained from this modification.
