Integration and Testing of Optical Instrumentation for Space Applications

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Space optics is present in almost all instruments embarked in spatial missions. Among others large-aperture long-focal length optical systems, spectrometers and visible/IR cameras are common instruments. Operation in the hostile spatial environment requires an exhaustive on-ground integration and verification campaign where optical, electro-optical and radiometric performances shall be verified. Determination of suitable facilities, means, support equipments and process are fundamental for the mission success. A review of INTA experience and capabilities in this field are presented.
