Image of IXPE Mirror Assemblies (MMAs) integrated into the Mirror Module Support Structure (MMSS)
October, 2020: At Ball Aerospace, all three of IXPE’s flight Mirror Module Assemblies (MMAs) were integrated into the Mirror Module Support Structure (MMSS). The MMSS will be attached to an extensible optical bench (not shown), to establish the Observatory’s 4-meter focal length when deployed in orbit. The red-capped tube mounted at the top center of the MMSS is the forward star tracker. The 3-legged support stand and the circular handling cages at the top of each MMA are (non-flight) ground support equipment (GSE). (Image courtesy of Ball Aerospace.)
