CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES (CTEC) Fast Steering Mirrors’ (FSM) platform and their associated electronics are widely used in optical instruments, cameras, telescopes and electro optic systems embedded on airplanes, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), satellites, spacecrafts, etc...
Their excellent dynamic performance, reliability and compactness make them ideal for the following mechatronic functions & applications: image resolution enhancement (micro-scanning, pixel shift, dithering), image & line of sight stabilization, field of view increase, fillet compensation, fine pointing ahead and tracking.
The Commercially Of The Shelves (COTS) Solutions for FSM are presented below. A dedicated brochure Fine & Fast Steering Mirrors presents the customized and OEM FSM solutions already delivered by CTEC to the Space and Electro Optic market.
The double tilt translator DTT35XS-SI-2 generates 2 rotations around axis X (Tip) and Y (tilt). Its interfaces are suitable for having high dynamics motion with small diameter glass mirror (< 1 Inch).
Max Angular stroke 5 mrad; Unloaded Blocked-free resonance frequency 2 600 Hz; Dimensions 21.4mm*45mm*65mm
Strain gauges, Vacuum
The tilt translator is based on 2 APA 60SM actuators. Two types of movement can be generated: translation and tilt but only Tilt motion is available in standard definition.
Rx angular displacement (mrad) : 22; Unloaded resonance frequency (Hz): 400; Capacitance per axis (uF): 3
