Optical Beam Control Testbeds
Abstract: : This paper discusses two optical beam control testbeds developed at the Spacecraft Research and Design Center, Naval Postgraduate School, to evaluate and develop control techniques for jitter and adaptive optics control. The first testbed, a Jitter Control Testbed is used to develop control techniques for optical beam jitter. In the second testbed, the Adaptive Optics Testbed, adaptive optics control techniques are used to control the surfaces of a segmented mirror with the objective of minimizing aberrations in the images. This paper will also discuss the evaluation of different control techniques used in jitter and adaptive optics control.
