Precision Optical Structures

Orbital ATK composite optical-support structures perform with uncompromising precision in cryogenic temperatures, providing spacecraft telescopes and imaging systems the stability required for unprecedented astronomical observations.

Orbital ATK precision optical structures are critical components on the Hubble Space Telescope, Chandra X-ray Observatory, James Webb Space Telescope, Mars Exploration Rovers, and Space Tracking and Surveillance System, part of America’s missile-defense architecture. They also housed the imaging equipment aboard NASA’s Deep Impact mission, which captured data from the spacecraft as it collided with the comet Tempel 1 and transmitted back to earth for study in real time.
