Abstract
The innovation being proposed in this project is the development of an ultra lightweight, noncontaminating dimensionally stable optical bench structural material product for small-sat applications. Candidate materials for the proposed structural material product, a sandwich structure, include: foamed SiC core with C-C facesheets, foamed SiC/A1 core with SiC facesheets, foamed SiC isogrid with SiC or C-C facesheets, and C-C honeycomb with C-C or SiC facesheets.
