Abstract : This report summarizes the construction of calibrations files for the CHAWS retarding potential analyzer (RPA) detectors. Calibrations data taken in the MUMBO vacuum chamber using the CALSYS system are analyzed. The six CHAWS RPA apertures, three on ram side and three on the wake side, were represented by means of data lines which emanate from the center of each detector. Methods and routines were developed to build the calibrations files which depict the average aperture response as a function of the polar and azimuth angles with respect to the aperture normal.
