Paper Abstract

A general framework is presented for the matrix-form, linear optical model analysis of controlled optomechanical systems; the models are conjoined with linear models of structures and controls to compute system performance as a function of optics, structures, and control parameters. Covariance analysis, optimization, and estimation/simulation are used. Attention is given to a tolerancing example for the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field and Planetary Camera, which involves the creation of a linear model of residual pupil shear.
