Abstract
The Cosmic Evolution Through UV Surveys (CETUS) concept has three UV instruments to achieve its science goals that work in the near ultraviolet (NUV) and far ultraviolet (FUV). The NUV multi-object spectrograph (MOS) and the NUV/FUV Camera operate simultaneously with their separate field of views. The key enabling technologies will be discussed including the micro-shutter array, detectors, and optical coatings. The NUV MOS can target up to 100 objects at a time which will allow over 100,000 galaxies to be observed during the mission lifetime. The UV Camera has the capability to image from the FUV to the NUV at the same time the MOS is operating at 180-350 nm. The UV Camera has a selection of bandpass filters, longpass filters, and two separate detectors to optimize observing in either the FUV or the NUV utilizing a sealed CsI solar blind micro-channel plate and a 4Kx4K CCD respectively. Both instruments have a tip/tilt/focus mechanism on one of their optics allowing independent focus correction and dithering of the image at the focal plane.
