Electro-Optic Sensor and System Performance Verification with Motion Systems

Tom Markel
Aerospace Strategic Accounts Manager

This article describes electro-optic (EO) sensors and how to use motion control equipment for their testing. EO sensors and the type of photonics tests employed to verify their performance are discussed, along with fundamental test design rules, best practices for selecting appropriate motion equipment, different ways to precisely steer the EO sensor line of sight with motion systems and three EO test layouts that can be employed when testing sensors with motion equipment.
