Integrated Focal Plane Wavefront Estimating for Space Mission Coronagraphs

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Integrated Focal Plane Wavefront Estimating for Space Mission Coronagraphs
As part of the FY17 CIF effort, we have raised the TRL from 1 to 3 having demonstrated the key concept in our solution (See Figure). This method uses an already existing optical element in a coronagraph to provide controlled diversity and enable wavefront estimation across the coronagraph’s optical planes. The next steps include vacuum testing at the JPL High-Contrast Imaging Testbed (HCIT) for the WFIRST Phase A/B coronagraph demonstration or at Lockheed-Martin’s ATC as part of the EXCEDE Phase A/B.
