22 September 2005 Ralph: a visible/infrared imager for the New Horizons Pluto/Kuiper Belt mission
Author Affiliations +
The instrument named Ralph is a visible/NIR imager and IR hyperspectral imager that would fly as one of the core instruments on New Horizons, NASA's mission to the Pluto/Charon system and the Kuiper Belt. It is a compact, power efficient, and robust instrument with excellent imaging characteristics and sensitivity, and is well suited to this longduration flyby reconnaissance mission.
