Abstract : This invention disclosure describes a thin film plane-polarized electromagnetic energy pickoff system. The system provides a wide-angle linear range of + or - 40 degrees with a cosine nonlinear range of + or - 65 degrees. The design allows all active components to be mounted on the unstabilized housing structure, thus eliminating torque stabilization problems. (Author)
