Abstract:

AN "OPTICAL VERNIER" IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL ALLOW CLOSED LOOP, HIGH PRECISION POINTING AND TRACKING OF A RECEIVER FOR LINE-OF-SIGHT, SHIP-TO-SHIP OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS. USING REFLECTING CORNER CUBES AS A FEEDBACK DEVICE, THE VERNIER ALLOWS VERY HIGH PRECISION TRACKING USING INEXPENSIVE GIMBALS. TRACKING IS DONE BY DEFLECTING THE OUTPUT BEAM RATHER THAN GIMBALLING THE ENTIRE TRANSMITTER.
