Paper Abstract

A system study has been conducted to determine performance capability to make observations of members of the Solar System using the Large Space Telescope (LST), which was primarily conceived for stellar observations. 'Ahe study identified the LST capabilities for viewing opportunities considering the LST orbit location, ability to measure available flux at the input to the science instruments and the amount and rate of travel of the telescope line-of-sight (LOS) needed to follow members of the solar system for integrated measurements. The study results show the LST system to have good capability for the collection of solar system data with small additional equipment requirements to the stellar observational application.
