Abstract:

The Optical Angular Motion Sensor OAMS Program, Phase I, consisted of the design, fabrication, test and analysis of a Triaxial Angular Motion Sensor. A brassboard system was fabricated and assembled. It included a transmitter, a receiver assembly and an electronics assembly. The alignment information was transmitted between the transmitter and receiver on three discrete polarized light beams. The detail design and supporting analysis for the brassboard demonstration model includes electronics and optical components, thermal analysis, compensation circuitry and environmental stability to demonstrate the performance requirements. The selection of parts, materials and processes for the design and fabrication were in accordance with the required specifications.
