This document describes the design specifications for the new antenna positioning systems for the Very Large Array 25m antennas. First, I give an overview of the existing system. Then, I include an analysis of the position loop computation scheme and transfer function. Then I provide detailed input and output requirements. Finally, I indicate which areas will be replaced with new electronics and the rough plans to do so.
