The selection of the Advanced Technology Large Aperture Space Telescope (ATLAST) by the NRC Decadal Survey as the highest-priority space mission for the 2020s will result in a new flagship mission for NASA. Investing now in a few strategic engineering activities will improve the fidelity of the ATLAST reference mission concept, as well as continue the development of key technologies to TRL-5 by 2020.
The objective of the proposed effort is to complete several optical systems engineering activities in support of the ATLAST reference mission concept study. Continued progress on these tasks contributes to the long-term goal of the ATLAST study: selection by the NRC Decadal Survey as the highest-priority space mission for the 2020s.
