Abstract
The VUE sensor gathered data from a geosynchronous orbit in five mission areas: Target Handoff, Ultraviolet Phenomenology, Satellite Attack Warning, Space Cataloging, and Backgrounds Phenomenology. Data was gathered against the earth's disk, from deep space, and in proximity to the earth limb. To get the latter data, special measures were required in sensor design, optical fabrication, contamination control, and instrument calibration. This paper discusses these measures and present an evaluation of their effectiveness based on on- orbit calibration results.
