Abstract
The design of the 4 telescopes that make up the Solar Dynamics Observatory Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (SDOAIA) is described. This includes the optical design, optical mounting system, front aperture filters, and launch protection system. SDO-AIA is a study of taking a difficult telescope design and making four of them. We describe the technical challenges associated with the telescope mounting, mirror mounting, and the front aperture filter design and launch protection.
