Paper Abstract

At the Project Design Center at the JPL, a concurrent design environment is under development for supporting development and analyses of space instruments and telescopes in the early, conceptual design phases. This environment is being utilized by a Team I, a multidisciplinary group of experts. Team I is providing study and proposal support. To provide the required support, the Team I concurrent design environment features effectively interconnected high-end optics, CAD, and thermal design and analysis tools. Innovative approaches for linking tools, and for transferring files between applications have been implement. These approach together with effective sharing of geometry between the optics, CAD, and thermal tools are already showing significant timesavings.
