Ceramic High Performance Material. Lightweighted Mirrors and Stable Structures for Large Adaptive Optics (TBC)
BOOSTEC recent developments on Silicon Carbide material manufacturing permit to create new design for large adaptive optics and stable structures. High level thermomechanical performances are fully qualified for spatial components and can be transferred to ground applications. To reach new AO requirements for resonnance frequencies, thermal dissipation, mechanical resistance and stability and to apply on very large size mirrors, frames and structures, BOOSTEC proposes additionnal manufacturing capacities. Presentation of recent progress on ceramic parts implementations.
