Colorado Gimbal System for MOBI Vacuum

 

A high precision motion system was required to operate in the MOBI Vacuum Chamber at a High Vacuum level for Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP). The motion system consists of: 1 custom high precision linear slide used for vertical travel; 1 custom high precision linear slide used for horizontal travel; 1 high precision rotation stage that provides yaw motion; and 1 high precision tilt stage that provides pitch motion.  Key specifications: vacuum 1 x 10 -8 torr; vertical slide 362 mm; horizontal slide 368 mm; tilt ±18; rotation full 360º.  ADC wrote the control software and operator interface to debug and test the MOBI system for factory acceptance.
