SPIDER could find applications in spacecraft imaging systems From modern–day astronomers studying areas of space billions of miles away, to back in time when Galileo was gazing at the stars, the general design of a telescope has pretty much remained the same within the past 400 years. As part of a DARPA-funded project, Lockheed Martin’s Segmented Planar Imaging Detector for Electro-optical Reconnaissance (SPIDER) telescope replaces the large primary lenses used in refracting telescopes with an array of tiny ones that allow the instruments to shrink by a factor of 10 to 100. At the front of the refracting telescope, which has stayed the same since it was invented in the early 1600s, is a large lens similar to a magnifying glass that gathers light and feeds it to a smaller lens that turns it into an image.
