Paper Abstract

Exhaust from bipropellant rocket boosters is a potential source of contamination for cooled sensor optics. The effect of monomethyl hydrazine nitrate (MMH-nitrate) on scatter at 3.39 microns is investigated as a function of temperature in the range of 200-350 Kelvin and as a function of thickness. The space-simulated deposition of MMH-nitrate took place under high vacuum onto a bare beryllium mirror.
