Abstract
Significant progress has been made in the development of the Optical Telescope Element (OTE) for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) Observatory. All of the mirror assemblies are complete and delivered. The composite Primary Mirror Backplane Support Structure (PMBSS) has completed assembly and in Static Load testing. All the deployment mechanisms have completed their qualification programs. This paper will discuss the current status of all the OTE components and the plan forward to completion.
