Paper Abstract

Gossamer mirrors have the potential to reach 100 meter baselines in space because of their very light weight. We explore a type of system that uses an array of flat gossamer mirrors as a primary mirror. Using wavefront reconstruction, we can easily estimate the fields of view for these systems. We report the fields of view as a function of the free parameters for these systems.
