Self-aligning Deployable Space Telescope

Self-aligning Deployable Space Telescope

SSTL, the University of Oxford and the Surrey Space Centre have been awarded National Space Technology Programme funding to develop a novel self-aligning deployable space telescope, designed for sub 1 metre ground sample imaging requirements in a small launch volume spacecraft.  The demonstrator telescope will release from stowed launch configuration, deploy to full length, and autonomously align ready for in-orbit acquisition.
