6 July 2018 Acceptance testing for LSST camera raft tower modules
Author Affiliations +
The LSST Camera focal plane comprises twenty-one raft tower modules (RTMs), each with nine CCD sensors and their associated electronics. RTMs are assembled at Brookhaven National Lab and shipped to SLAC National Lab, where they must be re-verified before being assembled into the full focal plane. The process for accepting an RTM at SLAC has been thoroughly documented, including unpacking a raft from its shipping container, verifying aliveness of the electrical connections, performing metrology and electro-optical testing in an environment similar to the full Camera, and finally storing the RTM until it can be installed into the LSST Camera
