Paper Abstract

The field of contamination control has evolved to deal with increasingly sophisticated instruments developed in response to increasingly complex missions. Although there have been failures and degraded instrument performance due to contamination, contamination control methods have been largely successful to date. However, due to improvements in technology and the desire for more sensitive science measurements, spacecraft are no longer clean enough to meet more stringent contamination requirements. New contamination control engineering methods will require institutional investments. As a first step toward identifying appropriate areas for these investments, a “brainstorming” exercise is performed addressing some of the more important areas where improvements are needed.
