In mid-March, we began a series of tests on the LMTGTM surface segment prototype actuators. The purpose of the testing was to confirm the manufacturers performance predictions and to obtain familiarity with operation of the actuators. Following the initial tests, on-going testing has continued to better understand these findings. These more recent data are beyond the scope of this report. Instead, this report is intended to provide a reference document for the later tests. According to the initial tests, neither actuator meets the positioning specification without additional compensation. However, both actuators show promise that they may be able to reach the required performance given additional characterization.
