Paper Abstract

End-to-end tests of the second generation Wide Field and Planetary Camera for the Hubble Space Telescope were performed with an optical stimulus that accurately simulates the optical configuration of the aberrated Hubble Space Telescope. This paper describes the optical design of the stimulus and the tooling used to control its alignment and validate is performance.
