Phase 1
Fiscal Year: 2004
Title: Ultra-Lightweight Optical Components for FTS Instruments
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNL04AB33P
Award Amount: $70,000.00
 

Abstract:

NASA is pursuing novel technology for FTS instruments. The use of the conventional actuator technology is limited by the weight of optical components. The innovation of this Phase I lies in the application of composite membrane optics technology to device applications. In particular, ultra-lightweight retroreflectors will be manufactured in Phase I. Phase II will integrate this novel technology with stiff actuators.
