Double tip tilt mechanisms for demanding applications

The magazine Contrôles Essais Mesures (CEM) comes back on CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES (CTEC) double tip tilt mechanisms suited for demanding applications (P4).

CTEC piezo mechanisms and their associated electronics are widely used in Air, Space & Defence (ASD) applications. They can be found in optical instruments, cameras, telescopes and electro optic systems embedded on airplanes, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), satellites, spacecrafts, etc…The DTT is the most common mechanism that constitutes a steering mirror, it means Double Tip Tilt i.e. tilt on two perpendicular axis.
