Abstract
The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) is a NASA-funded astronomy mission that will operate in the 70 to 760 Å band. The science payload# which has been designed and built by the Space Sciences Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley, consists of three grazing incidence scanning telescopes and an EUV spectrometer/deep survey instrument. We give details of the planned mission profile and an overview of the instrumentation that the science payload comprises. Topics such as the thermal design, contamination control, and details of the electronics system are discussed. Finally, we review the results of the calibration of the various subsystems that make up the EUVE instrumentation and discuss the calibration plan for the integrated EUVE instruments, which began in June 1989 at the Berkeley EUV Calibration Facility.
