Integrated Optical Systems - TinsleyRequest Info
Precision OpticsTinsley Laboratories, a leading supplier of aspheric optics and a subsidiary of SSG Precision Optronics, recently delivered the beryllium Advanced Mirror System Demonstrator to Ball Aerospace. The 1.2-m hexagonal mirror system demonstrates a potential flight-size mirror segment that can be implemented in a multisegmented primary mirror system. It is the precursor to the multisegmented primary mirror for the James Webb Space Telescope.

Another recent delivery was the primary and secondary mirror for the Space Infrared Telescope Facility, which launched successfully Aug. 25. Performing well during the early phases of its three-month checkout period, it meets or exceeds all requirements for image quality.

Founded in 1926, Tinsley has been a leader in computer-aided processes and equipment. Tinsley has overcome the historical disadvantages of aspheres by developing unique and sophisticated automated manufacturing capabilities. Applications facilitated by Tinsley technology include ultraprecise optics for commercial industry, laser fusion, space and astronomy, and reconnaissance and defense.
