|Abstract: ||In what follows, we describe the thermal-mechanical model, the thermo-optical properties assumed for the components, and the environment which influences the thermal performance. Following this, we present predictions of performance sensitivity to variation in some of the optical characteristics. Studies of the performance sensitivity are continuing, to inform the direction of technology investment for further development of capabilities for large space telescopes.|
