Paper Abstract

NGST represents a challenging problem from the point of view of maintaining a milli-arcsecond level pointing accuracy and diffraction limited wavefront performance in the presence of dynamic onboard disturbances during science observations in a cryogenic environment. A Dynamics-Optics-Controls- Structures framework is being developed in support of the NGST dynamics and controls modeling program.
