Paper Abstract

This paper reports on the development, manufacture and integration of the James Webb Space Telescope’s sunshield and spacecraft. Both of these JWST elements have completed design and development testing. This paper will review basic architecture and roles of these systems. Also to be presented is the current state of manufacture, assembly integration and test. This paper will conclude with a look at the road ahead for each subsystem prior to integration with the integrated telescope and instrument elements at Northrop Grumman’s Space Park facility in late 2017.
