Abstract
This paper discusses the design issues and fabrication considerations specifically related to a large twelve meter, graphite-epoxy space truss that has been developed to provide support of the primary mirror system for the Space Laser Energy (SELENE) Beam Transmission Optical System (BTOS). Details of the optical system and wavefront corrector concepts have been discussed in prior papers. Specific issues which are addressed in this paper include optical performance needs, environmental requirements, and low-cost fabrication techniques.
