LIGHTWEIGHT REFLECTORS OF CARBON FIBRE REINFORCED PLASTIC

Objective


In the project theoretical and practical routes for recognizing and solving problems were identified (calculation and measurement of optical surfaces on CFRP substrates in micrometer and nanometre range, optimization, effects of temperature and moisture, design of a telescope subreflector).
QUALITY REQUIREMENTS IN THE FIELD OF RADIO AND OPTICAL ASTRONOMY, IN MEASUREMENTS FOR METEOROLOGY, OCEANOGRAPHY AND EARTH EXPLORATION, AND IN INSTRUMENTATION ARE INCREASING CONSTANTLY. TO RECEIVE AND TRANSMIT THE WIDE VARIETY OF SIGNALS AND DATA AND TO CARRY OUT MEASUREMENTS, TELESCOPES AND REFLECTOR SYSTEMS ARE NEEDED WHICH DISPLAY IMPROVED PROPERTIES. WORKING ON THE BASIS OF LIGHWEIGHT, CARBON-FIBRE REINFORCED PLASTICS, IT IS INTENDED TO DEVELOP METHODS OF CONSTRUCTION AND STRUCTURES, WORK OUT SPECIFIC MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUES, AND PROCESSING STEPS, AND MANUFACTURE MODELS AND SAMPLES. FOR THE PURPOSE OF VERIFICATION IT IS INTENDED TO MEASURE THEIR LONG-TERM GEOMETRIC SHAPE ACCURACY UNDER OPERATING CONDITIONS.
