Author Affiliations +
SAGEM, through its REOSC product line, is offering a high skill of optics design fabrication and assembly to the astronomical community. Beside large projects like ESO VLT, SOFIA or the Spain GTC, SAGEM is continuously active with smaller projects. In this paper, we will present our recent work in the field of thin films with mirror broadband and durable coating and large area filters for multimegapixel camera. Latest results of Sofia primary mirror integration will be presented. Work on large prime focus correctors like the one of CFHT MegaPrime and the SALT Spherical Aberration Corrector. For space astronomy it is our new activity of mold smoothing for large telecom antenna or submillimeter reflectors that will be presented.
