Paper Abstract

The development of an optical system to be used with the imaging science payload of an interplanetary space probe requires that the optical engineer reconcile two rather diverse sets of requirements. One set is provided by the Imaging Science Team - the ultimate customer and represents the objectives and goals for which reason the mission is undertaken. The second set is provided by the Engineering Team - the ultimate employer and represents the practical constraints of the people responsible for the successful achievement of this mission objectives.
