Abstract
The Third Generation Fast Steering Mirror (3GFSM) is based on a scalable design and uses high performance, high bandwidth electromagnetic (HBE) actuators. Mirror apertures are scalable from one inch to five inches and can be round or elliptical. The HBE actuators are more efficient than voice coil actuators and can be configured to support large displacement angles. Much lower mirror profiles can be achieved with these actuators due to their inherent flexibility in configuration. This results in small, lighter beam stabilization system. Mirror performance characteristics, (bandwidth, maximum acceleration, pointing accuracy, and residual jitter) make this mirror design ideal for line of sight stabilization in tactical ground and air platform applications of high energy lasers, such as the Joint High-Energy Solid State Laser (JHPSSL) and for lower power lasers used in laser communications and target designation.
