An instrument is currently being designed to provide both visual and ultraviolet imaging data from the Space Telescope. This instrument, the Wide Field Planetary Camera, is being managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for the Principal Investigator at the California Institute of Technology. This paper describes the relationships developed between the Principal Investigator, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and industry to design, develop, fabricate, and test the optical system of the instrument. The primary role of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the development of the optical system is the management of the design, fabrication, and testing activity required to produce flight hardware from the baseline optical design provided by the Principal Investigator. A portion of the design and fabrication activity will be performed by JPL in-house, with the remainder performed by industry under subcontracts managed by JPL. Along with a description of the organization and management of the optical activity is an overview of the instrument, its optical system, and its expected performance.
