dc.description.abstractHexapod systems (6 legged Stewart Platforms), offer advantages in accuracy over other positioning systems and are finding applications in numerous telescopes. However, instruments with increased sophistication for modern telescopes continue to grow in size and required positioning accuracy. This paper details an alternative hexapod configuration and design approach, particularly focused on relatively large, high precision hexapod systems supporting high mass payloads. The new configuration improves accuracy, reduces actuator mass, simplifies design, and reduces system cost but requires modest additional control algorithm sophistication.en
