Once associated almost entirely with military applications, stabilized pointing and tracking systems are now employed on everything from satellites to submarines in a growing number of scientific and commercial applications ranging from interesting toys to some of the most precise (and expensive) scientific instruments built by mankind (eg the Hubble Space Telescope). Some of the many types of system applications and requirements are discussed along with a few mechanisms, engineering challenges and devices commonly found in these systems such as a wide variety of gyroscopes.
