Peregrine will rely on advanced composites with unique dampening factors and our experience with kinematic mounts to develop and fabricate a state of the art, ultra-lightweight optical bench. This will be a high stiffness, and lightweight optical support structure capable of flying on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at high altitudes. It will have mounts capable of yielding less than a few hundred nanoradians of jitter during operation. The design will be based upon thesis, materials and technology that have been proven in a laboratory environment. Approved for Public Release 14-MDA-7663 (8 January 14)
