Abstract

The large JPL solar simulation systems are unique in their ability to furnish well collimated light over large areas with good uniformity and high efficiency/intensity. These systems furnish simulated solar irradiance to 10-ft (3-m) and 25-ft (7.6-m) space simulation chambers. The discussion is divided into two parts. In the first part (Sec. II) the existing facilities are described and some potential improvements discussed. In the second part (Sec. III) some results of a high-intensity lamp development program are presented.
