The NIRCam will be used to take test images of objects in space to determine how much they need to adjust each of the telescope's 18 primary mirror segments.
"NIRCam has a special filter wheel that can select, or filter, specific optical elements that are used during the coarse phasing process.
Then, they will use NIRCam to take 18 out-of-focus images of that star - one from each mirror segment.
Also, the company said that it will oversee the optical, mechanical, structural, thermal and electronic precision mechanisms and the control software of the NIRCam, while its advanced infrared detector arrays will come from Teledyne Imaging Systems.
