  • Concurrent engineering of an infrared telescope system
    A Simulation Process tying structural analysis to the CAD design was then created within the SDE software to help refine the CAD to ensure telescope compatibility with its chosen launch environment.
  • Performance of an Automatically Deployable ROPS on ASAE Tests
    Component sizing of the two-post telescoping structure was facilitated by use of finite element analysis (FEA) and computer-aided design ( CAD ) software (Harris et al., 1997; Harris et al., 1998).
  • Dynamic Performance of the Mechanism of an Automatically Deployable ROPS
    DescriptionSpring-Action Telescoping Structure Design of the two-post telescoping structure was facilitated by use of finite element analysis (FEA) and computer-aided design ( CAD ) software .
  • Static Load Test Performance of a Telescoping Structure for an Automatically Deployable ROPS
    DescriptionTelescoping Structure Design of the two-post telescoping structure (fig. 1) was facilitated by use of finite element analysis (FEA) and computer-aided design ( CAD ) software .
  • Semirigid mirrors with sparse actuators: thermal and structural performance capabilities
    The use of CAD , fmite element, and post processing analysis software , allows primary minor systems to be designed and built at 10% of the mass required for the Hubble Space Telescope .

  • Front Matter: Volume 8127
    David explained how the numerous/complex outputs required are best developed in a collaborative design environment where engineering data and CAD /CAE results can be shared across engineering discipline boundaries within a common software interface. This paper provides an example of an infrared telescope and spectrometer system designed in a Simulation Driven …
  • Command completion within an EPICS database
    This paper presents the design of the Gemini CAD (Command Action Directive) and CAR (Command Action Response) EPICS database records and illustrates their use in a telescope mount control context dealing with the handling of repeated offset and slew commands. Keywords: control systems, command completion, software design, EPICS, real-time databases .
  • Dome flat-field system for 1.3-m Araki Telescope
    For the optical design of the dome flat-fielding system, we used non-sequential ray tracing simulation software , LightTools. At first, we produced a 3D model of the optical system including the telescope structures such as the mirror cells, spiders, top ring, and trusses supporting the top ring using 3D CAD .
