The Optical Space Telescope Assembly (OSTA) task is to demonstrate the technology readiness of assembling large space telescopes on orbit in 2015. This task is an integrated part of the Optical Testbed and Integration on ISS eXperiment (OpTIIX) program. FTE at JSC will design, build, and test the Gimbal and the robotic driven attachment mechanisms, develop the robotic operation assembly and maintenance plan and procedures, and perform the integrated ISS analysis of the OpTIIX Payload. For FY12, this task will be brought to a PDR level of documentation and hardware.
