NASA Goddard Space Flight Center has developed a pointing measurement detection and control system that monitors the real-time optical axis motions (such as tip and tilt) that affect image quality in aerial platforms. To date there is no known real time optical image alignment and control system available that simultaneously accommodates the combined focal plane functions of science image collection and image stabilization control. Current monitoring techniques involve replicating the science image focal plane and a separate pointing monitor system that directly compete for the exact same focal plane real-estate thus making it a one-or-the-other measurement.

This technology enables correction of image degradation introduced by tip and tilt motions. This system operates in both the visible and IR spectral regions, can be adapted to different optical systems, and does not require any special manufacturing processes or materials.

During the webinar, you will learn much more about this novel technology, as well as how NASA’s technologies and capabilities are available to industry and other organizations through the NASA Technology Transfer Program.
