Contract: FA9451-04-M-0241
Award Amount: $99,963.00
 

Abstract:

The QorTek/Goodrich team is proposing a novel high stiffness SiC-SiC/C FSM design that incorporates a new self-assimilated actuation concept for multi-kHz tilt correction capability. The design concept will enable larger mirror clear aperture to be a reachable goal. The novel solution will enable a new level of performance in a compact lightweight design that is readily amenable to both conventional and fully distributed tip-tilt Fast Steering Mirror implementations. The high-speed microcontroller uses colocated sub nanometer absolute position sensing self-integrated into the actuator that exhibits large dynamic range and promises exceptional performance.
