Objective: European alternative for the United States based Risley beam steering device.
Targeted Improvements: Compared to classical gimbal based beam steering devices, the Risley prism beam steering systems are smaller, use less power and weigh less, making them more immune to vibration andthus able to achieve higher response times and beam steering rates.
Description: European alternativefor the United States based Risley beam steering device.
To design and evaluate a Risley prism beam steering device together with the advantages such a system may provide over a gimbal based device. In particular the expected improvements in response time and pointing error shall be investigated.
The activity is divided into the following steps:
