In order to solve the problem that the mass and the surface figure accuracy of the space reflective mirror are often contradictory in the lightweight design process, a structural optimization design of a lightweight rectangular reflective mirror of an off-axis three-reflection optical system is performed. In this study, a lightweight structure based on the center support of SiC materials is proposed. At the same time, a multi-objective optimization method is introduced. With the RMS value and Mass as the optimization targets at the same time, a mirror optimal structure model is obtained with a mass of 2.32 kg. Compared with the solid mirror, the lightweight ratio is 73.8%. Then the mirror subassembly is designed and the integrated performance of it is simulated. It shows that the RMS value of the mirror reaches respectively 2.5 nm, 2.2 nm and 7.3 nm when gravity load is applied in the directions of X, Y and Z axes. Furthermore, the RMS value is 3.2 nm when the mirror subassembly is under the load condition of uniform temperature rise of 4 ℃, which is far less than the requirement of RMS≤λ/50(λ=632.8 nm). Therefore the data meets the design requirements.
