28 July 1989 The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer: Overview And Calibration
Author Affiliations +
The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) is a NASA funded astronomy mission which will operate in the 70 -760 Å band. The science payload, which has been designed and built by the Space Sciences Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley, consists of three grazing incidence scanning telescopes and an EUV spectrometer/deep survey instrument. We give details of the planned mission profile together with an overview of the instrumentation which comprises the science payload. Topics such as the thermal design, contamination control and details of the electronics system are discussed. Finally we review the results of the calibration of the various sub-systems that make up the EUVE instrumentation and discuss the calibration plan for the integrated EUVE instruments which began in June 1989 at the Berkeley EUV Calibration Facility.
