Paper Abstract

The Rear Slit Camera (RSC) will be used in the SUMER (Solar Ultraviolet Measurements of Emitted Radiation) instrument on SOHO to investigate the exact position and quality of the solar limb imaged on the entrance slit of the SUMER spectrometer. The diffracted visible sun light will be focused on an image sensor array. The analogous signals are transferred to the internal RSC electronics and transferred to the SUMER Data Processor Unit (DPU). According to the major design constraints redundancy of the optomechanics and electronics of the RSC was not required, because the reliability of the camera was not estimated to be system critical. The scientific objects, the technical development and verification of this camera shall be detailed. The achievements of the tight cooperation between Kayer-Threde and the Max Planck Institute for Aeronomy, in terms of technical performance and costs shall specially be emphasized.
