    Douglas, Ewan; Allan, Gregory; Barnes, Derek; Figura, Joseph S.; Haughwout, Christian A.; e.a. (Proc SPIE, 2017-09)
    The Deformable Mirror Demonstration Mission (DeMi) was recently selected by DARPA to demonstrate in-space operation of a wavefront sensor and Microelectromechanical system (MEMS) deformable mirror (DM) payload on a 6U ...
  • Laser Beacon Tracking for High-Accuracy Attitude Determination 

    Nguyen, Tam; Cahoy, Kerri (29th Annual AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites, 2015-08)
    CubeSat pointing capabilities have greatly improved in the past few years, paving the way for more sophisticated science and technology demonstration missions. Advances in attitude determination have led to the development ...
  • Atmospheric characterization of cold exoplanets with a 1.5-m space coronagraph 

    Maire, A. -L.; Galicher, R.; Boccaletti, A.; Baudoz, P.; Schneider, J.; e.a. (Amsterdam Netherlands: SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering, 2012)
    Several small space coronagraphs have been proposed to characterize cold exoplanets in reflected light. Studies have mainly focused on technical feasibility because of the huge star/planet flux ratio to achieve in the ...
