20 October 1986 Verification Of The Hipparcos Payload Short Term Stability Performances
Author Affiliations +
The primary aim of the ESA's HIPPARCOS mission is to produce an astrometric catalogue of about 100.000 stars with an extreme accuracy (2 milliarc seconds). To achieve this goal, very severe requirements have been put on the payload. This paper concentrates on the short term stability requirements. In a first step, the link between the mission performances and the related hardware design and requirements is established. Then the methods used to verify these requirements are presented : - description of the methods and testing philosophies, - accuracies, constraints and limitations, - results of the tests already performed.
