Abstract
Experience and infrastructure from NGST's Wavefront Control Testbed (WCT) were utilized to develop a portable wavefront sensor, the Phase Retrieval Camera (PRC). The PRC is useful for the testing of optics in high-jitter environments. The principal uses of the PRC will be testing and experimenting with NGST technology demonstration mirrors as well as exploring other issues of wavefront sensing and control not easily studied using the WCT. This presentation will detail the packaging and hardware chosen for the PRC, the PRC software, and calibration of the instrument.
