Freeform Optics enabling CubeSat Missions

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Freeform Optics have the potential to reduce package size and improve image quality of optical instruments.  This project investigates their use in CubeSat platforms.

Freeform Optics give more design degrees of freedom that enable smaller package sizes and improved image quality for optical instruments.  This project includes a design study using freeform optics, and evaluation of a prototype freeform optic in enabling instruments for CubeSat platforms.
