Paper Abstract

Considerations fundamental to the design of optical systems for interplanetary platforms are discussed with regard to the degree that they require departures from ground-based optical technology. Spectral availability, radiation and thermal cycles, microgravity, and space transportation constraints are considered, and new optical technologies are reviewed for their potential impact on the planetary missions planned for the rest of this century.
