Paper Abstract

The designs and performances of lunar optical and submillimeter interferometer systems for the Space Exploration Initiative (SEI) are described. Attention is given to the conceptual design of these systems and to the concepts for the launch, transport, deployment, maintenance, and toleration of the lunar environment (both natural and induced by crew activity). Consideration is also given to the requirements for SEI resources (such as cargo space and crew time), the data return concepts, and the flight system technonogy develpment needs.
