The OAO was successfully operating for approximately 11 months and has made over 2500 stellar observations. The OAO control system was a complex system which takes the 4500-lb vehicle through initial stabilization to star tracker control where a pointing accuracy of less than 1 arc minute was achieved. To obtain this pointing accuracy, the system used six orthogonally mounted gimbaled star trackers. The trackers were two gimbaled devices, having a 1-deg field of view with a + or - 43 deg gimbal excursion. The tracker could recognize and track 2.0 magnitude stars or brighter. The flight results indicated spacecraft pointing accuracies of less than 1 arc minute after tracker calibration with spacecraft jitter less than 3 arc seconds.
