Abstract
This paper describes the validation of an integrated modeling tool using data collected from a laboratory set-up. The modeling package, Integrated Modeling of Optical Systems (IMOS), combines structural modeling, optical modeling and control system simulation into a single environment. The Micro-Precision Interferometer Testbed, a ground-based version of a full- scale spaceborne interferometer, provides the opto-mechanical problem for this investigation. The objective of the effort is twofold: (1) validate the predictive capabilities of IMOS; (2) initiate the controller design for the subsystem under investigation. Ground-based validation of this modeling tool will provide a crucial step towards the ultimate goal of accurately predicting on-orbit behavior of future precision optical instruments.
