Project Title:

Acquisition Strategies for Future Space-Based Optics
PIN: DEPS-AFSB-17-02        

Major Unit:

Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences

Sub Unit: Air Force Studies Board DEPS

RSO: Fuller, Joan

Subject/Focus Area: Math, Chemistry, and Physics; Space and Aeronautics

Project Scope
The Academies shall convene an ad hoc committee of experts to evaluate and respond to the following questions:

Are the current technology investments in space-based optics adequate to ensure these technologies are mature enough to be considered for next generation architecture, and if not, what additional measures are required to assure an informed decision?

Are the current technology demonstration projects sufficient to both reduce risk for insertion of future technologies and to provide a mechanism to more efficiently transition future technologies?

What opportunities exist to better inform future technology development and/or transition decisions?

Project Duration: 18 months
