Satellite Payload Optical Systems
AAO has substantial experience in the design and development of precision optical systems for astronomy applications. This expertise has been applied to a range of new projects that require satellite-mounted optical systems for different applications. We have developed concepts for
- satellite near-field and Earth observation systems with narrow to wide fields-of-view using small form factor solutions with custom optics.
- space-rated laser collimation and fibre coupling optical systems.
- deployable optics and phasing systems for space telescopes.
- space rated steering mirrors.
