Paper Abstract

Under ESO - European Southern Observatory - contract ECM has performed a feasibility study for the manufacturing of Cesic primary and secondary mirror segments for the OWL-Telescope. The main issues of this study were to demonstrate the feasibility of the serial production (~ 2550 segments) of Cesic mirror segments under a certain schedule and cost optimisation aspect for the segments. Part of this study was also a pre-design of a manufacturing facility for this big amount of mirror segments. This study is limited only up to the manufacturing of a polishable surface, the feasibility of the polishing capability is not part of this study.
