Reflector tilting for satellites

Satellites communicate with one another using laser beams. For this communication, the transmitter must be very precisely aligned with the receiver. The laser beam is stabilised using a deflection mirror. The position values are recorded with miniature eddy current sensors from Micro-Epsilon which achieve a resolution of better than one microrad. These sensors are also used in positioning tasks such as for laser tracking or lithography.
