The special requirements imposed by planetary missions require that the spacecraft which are designed to conduct them have certain unique properties as platforms for optical instruments. This paper will provide a general overview of these properties and discuss in some detail a current state-of-the-art planetary platform, the Galileo planetary spacecraft.
