Paper Abstract

A large diameter lightweight elliptical plastic mirror was developed for use with an airborne laser sensor system. The plastic mirror, of moderate optical quality, is about one-third the weight and cost of an aluminum mirror of comparable size. This paper discusses the fabrication and optical characteristics of a honeycomb constructed plastic scanning mirror.
