OpticStudio used to design critical systems for James Webb Space Telescope
The most ambitious federal science project ever undertaken used OpticStudio® to create the system that will align the telescope’s primary mirror segments in space.
OpticStudio was selected to ensure the extremely sensitive and delicate mirror alignment that is critical to the function and mission of the telescope.
The team used OpticStudio to simulate and test a number of scenarios that could happen in space.
OpticStudio’s coordinate breaks allowed the optical engineers to effortlessly tilt and decenter elements in the optical model.
