Modeling and analyses of the Telescope Assembly for the Ariel mission. The Telescope Assembly (TA) is a key part of the payload of the Ariel satellite, since it constitutes the physical support for the mirrors, sensors and other elements related to optics. In this work, the elements that make up the TA will be analyzed, a geometric model and a thermal model (GMM and TMM respectively) will be elaborated and an analysis will be carried out under the selected operating conditions.
