Paper Abstract

Significant progress has been made in the development of the Optical Telescope Element (OTE) for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) Observatory. All of the mirror assemblies are complete and through final testing. The composite Pathfinder Primary Mirror Backplane Support Structure (PMBSS) has been completed and the flight structure is making significant progress. This paper will discuss the current status of all the OTE components and the plan forward to completion.
