Abstract
The Predictive Thermal Control (PTC) project is a multiyear effort initiated in Fiscal Year 2017, to mature the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of technologies required to enable ultra-thermally-stable ultraviolet/optical/infrared (UVOIR) space telescope primary-mirror assemblies for ultra-high-contrast observations of exoplanets. PTC has three objectives: validate thermal optical performance models, derive thermal system stability specifications, and demonstrate predictive thermal control. This paper reviews recent and previous accomplishments.
