16.89/ESD.352 Space Systems Engineering Lunar Telescope Project Spring 2007 Assignment 2 In this assignment you will map out the key relationships between angular resolution, signal to noise ratio and system cost for a telescope with a circular monolithic aperture at three wavelengths: radio frequency, infrared and visual. The purpose of this exercise is for you to obtain a better understanding the relationships between key aspects of the problem such as imaging performance in terms of isolation and sensitivity, system mass, system cost and location. Out: Friday, February 16, 2007 Due: Friday, February 23, 2007 You can solve this assignment in teams of two. When uploading your answer, upload a Word or Latex file with your report and a zip file with all your calculations. You may choose whatever tool suits you best (Matlab, Excel, Mathematica …). Nomenclature θ angular resolution, rad D circular aperture diameter, m C D cost of an aperture of diameter D , $ m D mass of an aperture of diameter D
