Paper Abstract

12 A new facility is presented designed for the absolute and relative radiometric calibration of space instruments. All parts of the facility, thermal vacuum system, software, electronics and even the layout of the facility, are subordinate to the quality of the measurements. For each part is explained, how and why, the design of this particular part is contributing to improvement of the calibration.
