Abstract
Recent and future needs for high spatial resolution lead to increase the pupil diameters and the focal lengths of space telescopes. In parallel, considerable efforts have been realised in the field of image processing by developing techniques which require high levels of performances characterization. The main consequences are the increase of the size of the Ground Support Equipments and facilities but also the mastering of the influence of the environment which becomes more and more fundamental. Wavefront and contrast measurements are two conventional but key tests which require constant evolution to be adapted to new needs.
