Paper Abstract

The development of an optical instrument involves many technological and project trade-offs. These become particularly important to a scientist, planning an experiment for a space mission. Typically, the scientist customer is accustomed to making the technological trade studies, but the wide variety of project options is a confusing subject. This review of some of the major options and their interaction with the engineering aspects of an instrument development program, should provide new insight for the optical customer.
