Shipment to the final customer of the FFI+ Qualification Model

Officina Stellare is proud to announce the shipment to the final customer of the FFI+ Qualification Model.
The FFI+ (Fine Field Imager), replacing the existing optical system used till now, will be the new generation field imager and guider installed on board of the SOFIA Airborne Observatory.
Thanks to the increased performance of the device provided by Officina Stellare to the NASA/DLR SOFIA team, an improvement of the efficiency of the SOFIA telescope will be possible.

SOFIA is the largest airborne observatory in the world, capable of making observations that are impossible for even the largest and highest ground-based telescopes. During its planned 20-year lifetime, SOFIA also will inspire the development of new scientific instrumentation and foster the education of young scientists and engineers.
SOFIA is an 80/20 partnership of NASA and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), consisting of an extensively modified Boeing 747SP aircraft carrying a reflecting telescope with an effective diameter of 2.5 meters (100 inches).
The observatory is based at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center in Palmdale, California. NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California, manages SOFIA's science and mission operations in cooperation with the Universities Space Research Association (USRA; Columbia, Md.) and the German SOFIA Institute (DSI; University of Stuttgart).

A really challenging design and manufacturing process is behind this Officina Stellare's major achievement.
The optical payload is based on a wide field, large bandwidth 300 mm f/2.2 custom optical design that Officina Stellare develops in its internal optical lab to meet the tight requirements provided by the customer.
One of the biggest challenge was the required high field image quality stability over an extreme 100 degrees span of operating temperature (-60 to +40 ∞C).
In addition, the optomechanical performance must be kept under a severe 10g acceleration during use.
Thanks to the use of special materials and some quite peculiar and innovative solutions, Officina Stellare accomplished the not so easy "mission".
One more result that confirms the special Officina Stellareís skill in the design and manufacturing of critical environment compatible optical systems.

OFFICINA STELLARE AT THE FOREFRONT OF RESEARCH AND INNOVATION

OFFICINA STELLARE AT THE FOREFRONT OF RESEARCH AND INNOVATION

Italian company and top academic and research institutions work together To pave the way with new astronomical research and design highly advanced products

Sarcedo (VI) – Officina Stellare remains at the forefront of research and innovation in the engineering and manufacture of telescopes. 
The past few months have seen the collaboration of Officina Stellare with some of the leading universities in the field of astronomical research. In fact, two ambitious projects, conceived by Officina Stellare and, respectively, the University of Padova and the University of Verona, were assigned two research fellowships sponsored by European funds. 
 “We’re very proud of this achievement,” said Giovanni Dal Lago, Vice President, Chief of R&D, at Officina Stellare. “It’s a confirmation of our primary focus – innovation above all. We’re very excited to work together with two of the best Italian universities to pioneer new fields and design innovative products.”
The research fellowship won by the University of Padova will explore the study and monitoring of the earth’s surface for environmental purposes and design a micro-satellite for the environmental monitoring of the space, which belongs to a new category of satellites recently introduced in the market – Cubesat. For this project – called MISAS (MIcrosatellite per la Sorveglianza Ambientale dallo Spazio) – Officina Stellare will develop a Cubesat satellite for the analysis of images both in the visible and infrared spectrum by designing and producing two dedicated optical channels miniaturized with scientific performance. Positive outcomes include, but are not limited to, the possibility to monitor large areas of land in order to identify its non-authorized exploitations, as well as monitor landslides and flooding, which will result in considerable benefits for the public safety. 
Furthermore, the research fellowship won by the University of Verona will focus on the adaptive optics technology, which compensates for the interferences on the images caused by the atmospheric turbulence through the use of deformable optics. Therefore, this project is aimed at the realization of a High-resolution Adaptive Optics Telescope (HAOT). Up until now, this technology has been used only for large telescopes in scientific studies, and this project aims to leverage the technology for smaller telescopes intended for amateurs. With the collaboration of another research institute – the CNR-IFN, focused on photonics and nanotechnologies – the University of Verona and Officina Stellare will then conduct multidisciplinary research to develop a planetary imaging system with adaptive optics for small- and medium-scale telescopes. 
Finally, Officina Stellare has also successfully submitted a proposal to ACTPHAST (Access CenTer for PHotonics innovAtion Solutions and Technology Support) – a center supporting photonics innovation by European companies, funded by the European commission and made up of 23 research institutes from all over Europe. Officina Stellare’s IWFC project (Integrated Wide-field Fast Camera) involves the design and development of a CCD camera based on an array of four sensors build 2x2, equipped with an electronic platform and an electromagnetic shutter, and a cooled unit to reduce thermal noise. The project also includes the realization of an optical system composed of a combination of lenses and prisms to avoid the dark zones.
These trailblazing projects prove Officina Stellare’s commitment to innovation, and multi-sector partnerships with some of the best academic and research institutes in Italy and Europe are a further confirmation of the scientific excellence promoted by the company.
