Paper Abstract

Up to now all mirrors verified and flown in interferometric optical and IR astronomic instruments on space missions documented in the literature have been passive systems. Preliminary investigations have shown that requirements of future systems like a significant reduction in mass while maintaining optical quality or an increase of optical quality at constant mass, as well as realization of mirrors with several meters in diameter while meeting all requirements for modern satellite systems can only be achieved by active shape control of the optical surface.
