Paper Abstract

NASA has an ambitious plan for exploring the universe involving many space-based observatories. The CSI program (Control Structure Interaction) is a NASA funded project to design microprecision spacecraft observatories from a multidisciplinary approach by integrating the structural, control and optical subsystems of these spacecraft. A Focus Mission lnterferometer (FMI), representative of one of NASA's astrometric missions for extrasolar planet detection was selected as the focus for developing this multidisciplinary technology. Very early in this study it was discovered that integrated modeling tools were necessary to predict the on orbit performance of the FMI.
