Paper Abstract

The High-Altitude Balloon Experiment requires the injection of an inertial reference beam into the optical system by means of an extended corner cube (ECC). The optical system including the ECC can move up to +/- 1 mrad with respect to the inertial beam. The ECC must return the beam antiparallel to the inertial beam to within +/- 40 nrad. The analysis presented here indicates that the three mirrors of the ECC must be perpendicular to each other to within 2 arcsec to meet the specification.
