Space Telescopes Active Mirrors
ADS in a team with CGS, Microgate, INAF and INO is developing for ESA ESTEC a deformable (active) mirror system for a space application. In the framework of a first programme called Advanced Lidar Concept a single actuator prototype was built and successfully tested at launch loads. A second project called Large Aperture Telescope Technology led to the construction of a 400mm 19 actuators optical breadboard (see picture) that has been successfully tested under thermal, vacuum and launch load cases.
