Paper Abstract

The Mariner Jupiter Saturn (Voyager) mission is a scaled down version of the tour of the Outer Planets mission. The spacecraft uses RTGs rather than solar panels for power generation, and the RTGs and radiation environment of Jupiter generates a requirement that the optical systems be designed and fabricated out of radiation stabilized optical materials. The narrow angle optical system is similar the one used on Mariner 10, but the wide angle system was designed for this spacecraft utilizing the cerium dcped glasses having the greatest blue transmittance.
