Statement of Purpose

Tech Days annually summarizes the USA Government's investment strategies and activities in developing technology for any application (such as telescopes, imaging systems, seeker/trackers, high-energy laser systems, solar energy, etc.) which requires optical components. Tech Days covers technology investment efforts in: optical materials; substrate design & manufacture; optical fabrication and metrology technology; optical coatings; wavefront sensing and control via adaptive optics; nano-technology imaging technologies; etc.

The purpose of Tech Days is to:

Review the technical accomplishments of last year and plans for the future of mirror technology development being funded via the Government (e.g., SBIRs, DIIs, NASA ROSES, direct contracts, etc.)
Celebrate success stories of funded mirror technology development efforts which have either been integrated into a Government program or reached the commercial marketplace.
Offer Prime Contractors and/or Systems Integrators the opportunity to identify specific technologies which they would like to see developed.

There will be OPEN and CLOSED sessions. OPEN sessions are intended for presentations of basic mirror technology development research. Presentations in the OPEN session contain no Export Controlled information. CLOSED sessions are intended for presentations which are Export or ITAR Controlled. Attendance for CLOSED sessions is restricted to US Citizens and Green Card Holders.
