Paper Abstract

The qualification of the NEAR laser transmitter is discussed with emphasis placed on the three major problem areas encountered: (1) use and derating of discrete power supply components; (2) application of a non-hermetic, high voltage hybrid to the space environment; and (3) vibration testing of the laser optics train. Summary comments are made with respect to the predictability of these quality/reliability problems.
