Paper Abstract

High resolution observation systems need bigger and bigger telescopes. The design of such telescopes is a key element for the satellite design. In order to improve the imaging resolution with minimum impact on the satellite, a big effort must be made to improve the compactness of the telescope. Compactness is also important for the agility of the satellite and for the size and cost of the launcher.
