Paper Abstract

This paper will discuss the technology demonstrated to date in the development of the Advanced Mirror System Demonstrator (AMSD) program sponsored by NASA, NRO, and the AFRL. Kodak's 8-kg/m2 semi-rigid mirror is pushing the state-of-the-art in the fabrication of ultra-lightweight cored mirrors. Combining the mirror with actuators and a reaction structure will create a 15-kg/m2 primary mirror system. Future plans and milestones for AMSD will also be discussed.
