Light-weighted optical systems
20 Mar 2018





​The team has unique UK expertise in designing and fabricating light-weighted optics for satellite and airborne imaging systems. Light-weighting of optics between 70% and 80% can be both designed and fabricated at the OpTIC Centre, up to a current size limit of 380 mm diameter. Light-weighting of optical systems for space-borne applications includes the design and analysis of light-weighted support structures, modelled to withstand demanding operating environments​​​
