Design and FEA Support

State of the art software is used at CMA to model mirror and structures designs and complete a thorough analysis before build. We use Solid Works 3-D modeling and rendering as well as COSMOS Finite Element Analysis (FEA). CMA will interface closely with customers to refine optical system and optics designs using carbon fiber composites.

CMA can assist customers with the use of carbon composites for applications where severe thermal, weight and stiffness dominate requirements. CMA has a thorough knowledge in designing optical structures and systems, taking full advantage of the anisotropic behavior of carbon composites in any design.
