Paper Abstract

During the past 15 years, Composite Optics, Incorporated (COI) has been very successful in the aerospace industry in the design and manufacture of thermally stable structures and high- precision, lightweight, solid reflector systems. COI's latest program, the Special Sensor Microwave Imager Sounder (SSMIS) Reflector, extends its capabilities into the area of ultra- lightweight, solid, deployable reflectors. This endeavor incorporates and improves the technologies developed on the stationary reflectors with the deployment mechanism technologies while maintaining the system's thermal stability.
