27 January 1989 Tolerancing The Lite Optical System
Author Affiliations +
LITE (Lidar In-space Technology Experiment) is a Langley Research Center project which will provide engineering data that can be used for future space-based lidar systems. The optical system consists of three science channels (the 355 nm PMT, the 532 nm PMT, and the 1064 nm APD channels) and one active alignment channel (the 532 nm QUAD channel) as aft optics to a Ritchey Chretien telescope. The purpose of this paper is to present the results of a study done to generate a tolerance budget for LITE using a combination of manual and Monte Carlo tolerancing techniques using the SYNOPSYStm optical analysis program.
