NASA worked with Optikos to develop a system to characterize visible wavelength lenses used in the RESTORE-L payload. Optikos delivered a unique quality measurement station designed to characterize the image quality of lens systems used on the NASA Restore-L Satellite Service Robots. These lenses act as the system’s “eyes” as it approaches and docks with a target satellite. To simulate docking conditions, a special Optikos LensCheck™ System projects resolution targets and measures the quality of lens imagery as the targets move from long to short range distances.
