Paper Abstract

This paper presents a status of the development of the 1.6 meter hybrid mirror demonstrator for the Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST) Program. The COI design approach for the NGST program combines the optical performance of glass, with the high specific stiffness capabilities of composite materials.
