Abstract

A magnetostrictively driven tilt-mirror mount for image stabilization of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center’s Experimental Vector Magnetograph has been designed, built, and tested. A simple improvement in the mounting technique of the actuator resulted in a factor of 3 increase in the lowest resonant frequency of the device. The tilt-mirror device was built, and the lowest structural resonant frequency was experimentally found to be 603 Hz.
