AOS to build Toliman Telescope

The TOLIMAN satellite will be launched in 2024 into a 550km altitude sun-synchronous low Earth orbit (LEO). This planned orbit will enable TOLIMAN to perform its observation mission over the course of 3 years, downlinking data back to The University of Sydney. The TOLIMAN payload is a 12.5cm space-based telescope, which is now under construction by Aperture Optical Sciences (CT, USA). Aperture Optical Sciences designs and manufactures precision optics components and systems for space–based imaging and optical communications.  More information on this exciting project at
