Robust Optical Edge for a Starshade Petal, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The proposed Phase I program will design and develop an optical edge that can be integrated to a petal structure and meet the precision, ground handling, packaging, launch and on-orbit environmental requirements. There will be an emphasis on optimizing the integration of a micro-thin metal alloy to a low CTE composite substrate. The Ph1 program will include prototyping and testing the optical edge architecture. In addition, deployable optical close-outs at the root of the petal will also be designed. More »
