Paper Abstract

The Advanced Mirror System Demonstrator program sponsored by NASA, the Space Based Laser Joint Venture Team, and the National Reconnaissance Office provides an opportunity to design and build a demonstration model of the next generation primary mirrors that will be needed for future space programs. This paper discusses the history of this technology at Kodak and provides an overview of the analysis techniques used in the design and performance prediction process.
