Paper Abstract

The planned Space Shuttle Experiment STDCE-2 (Surface Tension Driven Convection Experiment) requires a non-contact Surface Deformation measuring instrument to monitor the shape of a dynamic fluid surface. This paper presents a conceptual design for this instrument which best satisfies the various science, engineering, and managerial constraints.
