Abstract:

The report describes the tests performed on a small galvanometer movement, using a pivot-jewel bearing, to assess its suitability for use in space applications. Although only a small number of units was tested, the results suggest that with minor modifications, the mechanism is reliable under a space environment and well suited to certain satellite applications due to its small size, weight, and extremely low power consumption.
