Abstract
The Air Force Research Lab is proposing a DoD partnership with NASA on NEXUS; a deployable optics flight demonstrator scheduled to launch in 2004. NEXUS is designed to demonstrate technologies for the Next Generation Space Telescope, primarily the deployment and wave front control of a 2.8 meter optical telescope in space.
