Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

FLAT: Folded Low-profile Autonomous star Tracker for cubesats/smallsats

Perform trade studies over folded aperture optics to specify design parameters - diameter, effective aperture, sensitivity, field of view; Model, design, fabricate and test folded optics to demonstrate sufficient image quality for detecting stars; Identify components - imager and processor platform to obtain system level parameters (weight, volume, power, cost); Night sky test of folded optic to demonstrate star visibility.
