This report describes a study that investigated design concepts for a coelostat tracking mount for use as part of a CO2 laser tracking system. In this study design problems associated with the development of the mount were considered, design tradeoffs, optimized for performance with the constraints of manufacturability, were made, and requirements for major components and peripheral equipment were specified. The recommended configuration is a two-axis mount with a 40-inch clear aperture, utilizing air bearings and a direct drive system with associated servo electronics for smooth tracking capability.
