The 1553P Motion Table is designed to provide precise position, rate and acceleration motion for the development and/or production testing of inertial packages and their components requiring a large and unobstructed field of view. Its payload mounting surface is above the rest of the structure allowing a clear view upwards and outwards for antenna testing.

The 1553P Motion Table is a servo-controlled system that features direct-drive DC brushless motors, precision optical encoders and a microprocessor that provides accurate and reliable motion control. The table can be operated from the AERO4000™ Controller front panel for local control or through a computer interface for remote control.

This test table system is designed for ease of operation and is programmed with the Ideal Aerosmith Table Language (ATL) for remote operation.
