Abstract

Various optical configurations for Hubble Space Telescope simulators have been proposed, and some are being built for use as verification tools to characterize the performance of second-generation instruments during ground testing. We describe the Hubble Space Telescope, present an overview of three optical designs for simulators, and discuss the relative advantages and disadvantages of each configuration.
