Abstract : This invention relates to information transmission between moving objects and stationary objects. In particular, this invention relates to information arrays between rotating bodies and stationary bodies. There are numerous reasons that why it is preferable to rotate objects. Such reasons include spin stabilized nose-cones of missiles and tracking radars. The rotating members of these items generate information which is frequently two-dimensional. It is therefore an object of this invention to provide an apparatus that will transmit any type of information between a rotating member and a stationary member with only minor variations in specific components of the apparatus.
