The electro-mechanical design for precision pointing and tracking systems is a major task in the electro-optical system development process. Design tradeoffs must be optimized in selecting the electro-mechanical components and in designing the structure to achieve adequate system level performance. Key design issues and their interaction with the precision control systems are presented.
