Abstract

Now in Phase II of the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) Program, our team is advancing key technologies required to realize a suborbital, 10 meter class telescope suitable for operation from radio to THz frequencies. The telescope consists of an inflatable, half-aluminized spherical reflector deployed within a much larger carrier balloon - either zero pressure or super pressure.
