Abstract
Pleiades is the last generation of French satellite for earth observation. For this space program, SESO has been awarded the contract (fully completed end 2006), for the manufacturing of the whole set of telescope mirrors (EM, QM and FM, primary mirror with 700mm CA). These works did also include the mechanical design, manufacturing and mounting of the attachment flexures (MFDs) between the mirrors and the telescope main structure. This presentation will be focused on the different steps of manufacturing and control of these mirrors, as well as a presentation of the existing SESO facilities and capabilities to produce such kind of aspherical components/sub-assemblies.
