This paper gives an innovative concept to design and develop space optics "faster, better and cheaper". That is, we should not concentrate only on individually-segmented subsystems, but on all the characteristic values of the whole imaging system. Specifically, all of the values should be optimized in the integrated manner in order to efficiently achieve a globally optimized design solution. We propose a practical implementation method to realize the concept with some examples of our application to real space optics.
