Goodrich to support Japanese satellite

  • 10-Mar-2009 11:28 EDT
Goodrich Corp. has been selected to provide optical subassemblies for a new space-based telescope as part of Japan’s Advanced Satellite with New system ARchitecture for Observation (ASNARO) project. Work will be performed by Goodrich’s ISR Systems team in Danbury, CT. Under contract to NEC and NEC Toshiba Space Systems Ltd. (NTSpace), Goodrich will design, fabricate, align, and test the mirror assemblies for the new system, as well as integrate the optical subassembly into the telescope structure. NTSpace integrates and tests the total telescope system. The ASNARO project aims to develop Japan’s next-generation small satellite bus system, with the first mission designed for a high-performance telescope for Earth observation. The system is expected to be launched in 2011.
