Paper Abstract

As part of a study being performed for the U.S.A.F. Phillips Laboratory, Ball Aerospace has extensively tested a relay mirror that flew on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) as part of the University of Wisconsin's high speed photometer (HSP). In this paper, a review of the history of the HSP mirror is presented, including: (1) pre-flight and post- flight optical testing, (2) bi-directional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) performance before and after the post-flight removal of contaminants, and (3) chemical fingerprints of the contaminants. The BRDF data from the HST/HSP relay mirror are summarized in this paper and are also made available on DOS diskette.
