Paper Abstract

The instrumentation requirements for a spacecraft mission to Pluto include miniaturization, low power, high reliability, radiation tolerance, and low cost as well as significant science data return. To address these needs, we are developing a prototype, integrated, hybrid, focal plane assembly that can be used to acquire multi-spectral, visible-light images during the flyby. This focal plane integrates a four-channel CCD, clock drives, analog processing, and digital data conversion into a miniature assembly. This paper discusses our design and how it addresses the needs of NASA's space science program.
