Abstract
Recent advances in control systems and sensors allow construction of an inexpensive yet high- performance orbiting observatory to collect data at ultraviolet wavelengths between 1150 angstroms and 3000 angstroms. The Deep Ultraviolet Explorer satellite (DUVE) will obtain all-sky imagery at various broad band wavelengths, high-resolution images, and spectral across the UV region. The DUVE program offers substantial performance advantages over current space-based observatories.
