Improved beam jitter control methods for high energy laser systems
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2009-12)
The objective of this research was to develop beam jitter control methods for a High Energy Laser (HEL) testbed. The first step was to characterize the new HEL testbed at NPS. This included determination of natural frequencies ...
Thermomechanical effects of ground-based directed energy weapons on satellites and Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2006-09)
Thermo mechanical modeling and simulation of a satellite and intercontinental ballistic missile assumes importance due to the increased interest in assessing the potential of such attacks. Effective and innovative methods ...
Correcting surface figure error in imaging satellites using a deformable mirror
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-12)
A deformable mirror is proposed as a solution to correct aberrations on a satellite primary mirror surface. The deformable mirror is used in a double-pass configuration with an interferometer and a mirror segment on the ...
Wavefront control for space telescope applications using adaptive optics
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2007-12)
Future long dwell high resolution imagery satellites and space telescopes will require very large flexible primary mirrors. These large mirrors face many challenges including optical surface imperfections, structural ...
