Abstract : This document discloses an all-flexure linear isolation/suspension system for use with a movable structure (such as an optical tracker) which is connected to a fixed structure which, in turn, is subject to a considerable variety of different forces acting upon it. The structure of the system, and its connection to the movable structure and to the fixed structure, are such that the system prevents the transmittal of any rotational force from the fixed structure to the movable structure, and limits the motion of the movable structure (with respect to the fixed structure) to linear motion along three axes that are mutually orthogonal.
