Paper Abstract

The present paper describes the different steps leading to the Flight Model integration of the Mid-Infra Red IMager Optical Bench MIRIM-OB which is part of the scientific payload of the JWST. In order to demonstrate a space instrument capability to survive the challenging space environment and deliver the expected scientific data, a specific development approach is applied in order to reduce the high level of risks. The global approach for MIRIM-OB, and the principal results associated to the two main models, the Structural Qualification Model for vibration and the Engineering and Test Model for optical performance measured in the infra red at cryogenic temperature will be described in this paper.
