Optical Shield for a Starshade Petal, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The goal of this Phase I SBIR program is to design and develop a segmented optical shield 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 the optical shield to petal interface to minimize CTE effects. The optical shields will also be optimized to support the petals during launch. The Ph1 program will involve numerous hardware demonstration units and testing. More »
