Abstract
Both top-down and bottom-up cost algorithms have been generated for deployable and/or adaptive spaceborne optical systems. These models are anchored in real hardware, and can be used to estimate the cost of deployable optics at various levels of system decomposition. Recently, we have exercised these models to generate NGST cost estimates.
