This activity will address the realisation of a SPO Mirror Module meeting the requirements of the outer radius of the mirror. ATHENA requires silicon pore optics mirror modules (SPO MM) at a number of radial positions. Previous activities have concentrate(d) on a middle/inner position, and this activity shall demonstrate the production of an outer mirror module (radius about 1.5 m TBC). Theconstruction of such outer mirror modules requires shorter mirror plates, a modified mounting system, etc., and includes specific mirror module assembly tools. An SPO MM baffling system shall be implemented as required. The contractor shall perform pencil beam andfull aperture X-ray tests of all produced stacks and SPO MM to characterise their performance. The design and processes shall be documented as required by ECSS standards for product and quality assurance.
