Paper Abstract

This experiment is designed to measure the performance degradation of a cryogenic high straylight rejection telescope during its fabrication, assembly and test phases. The main thrust of this experiment is to obtain experimental data to define the point (s) in the process at which contamination occurs and to identify the remedial steps to correct the problems. The CIRRIS I (Cryogenic Infrared Radiance Instrumentation for Shuttle) telescope and its cryogenic chamber are utilized in this experiment as a representative cryogenic sensor in support of the SPIRIT II program (Spatial Infrared Telescope). Both CIRRIS I and SPIRIT II are programs through Utah State University and the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory (AFGL), Hanscom Air Force Base, Bedford, Massachusetts. This contamination study program is being performed for the Rome Air Development Center (RADC), and the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory.
