Full baffle and lens alignment assembly, designed to minimize stray light, mass, and size, and maximize optical performance.
Sandia National Laboratories sponsored a project to create a new design for an optical lens housing and baffle deployment mechanism. Our prototype involves a carbon fiber truss linked via 3D printed connectors and a lead screw deployment system. This unique design fits in a cubic foot envelope and is under 5 pounds, optimizing future satellites while still surviving a launch and space environment.
