Paper Abstract

The development of a lightweight one meter composite mirror that can be controlled and adjusted on-orbit, is presented. The data in this paper show that long wave distortion errors can be corrected by using embedded piezoelectric ceramic actuators. The proposed concepts were verified by both mathematical simulations and laboratory experiments.
