Paper Abstract

Large space optics technologies are developed for government support civilian and defense applications. Within a funding constrained environment, partnerships among members of the large space optics community serve to accelerate the pace of technology development and insertion of technology products into space operations. Although missions and operating requirements are quite different for the partners, NASA and DOD have teamed to address areas of common concern. One particularly successful partnership activity is aimed at significantly reducing areal density, cost and fabrication time for large optics. Other opportunities are being explored among the government partners.
