Paper Abstract

A study was done to evaluate the pointing performance of Space Telescope with a quadrant detector used as the fine guidance sensor. The detector, a quadrant digicon, has been proposed as a replacement detector should unforseen problems develop with the present baseline interferometer design. The detector model is discussed along with the experimental data from which it was derived.
