2017 Workshop

Mirror Technology Days 2017
 will happen November 14 to 16, 2017 at the Northrop-Grumman Aerospace Systems Presentation Center, One Space Park, Redondo Beach, CA.

The workshop is managed and organized by SPIE.   The Optical Society of Southern California is the local host. 

Presentations start on Tuesday November 14 and end on Thursday November 16. Exact days and times may vary depending upon the number of presentations and potential tours of the JWST.

Tech Days annually summarizes the USA Government's investment strategies and activities in developing technology for any application which requires optical components including: telescopes, imaging systems, seeker/trackers, high-energy laser systems, and solar energy. Technology investment efforts in optical materials; substrate design & manufacture; optical fabrication and metrology technology; optical coatings; wavefront sensing and control via adaptive optics; and nano-technology imaging technologies will be presented.

The purpose of Tech Days is to:

  • Review the technical accomplishments of last year and plans for the future of mirror technology development being funded via the Government (e.g., SBIRs, DIIs, NASA ROSES, direct contracts, etc.)

  • Celebrate success stories of funded mirror technology development efforts which have either been integrated into a Government program or reached the commercial marketplace.

  • Offer Prime Contractors and/or System Integrators the opportunity to identify specific technologies which they would like to see developed.
