Abstract : Under this contract multiple tasks were performed in support of the development of Ultraviolet Array Detector Research. The Horizon Ultraviolet Program instrumentation was supported through a second Space shuttle launch. An Ebert-Fastie spectrometer was modified to incorporate an array detector, as well as an astigmatic grating study performed for this instrument to determine performance improvement with the array over previously used detection techniques. The Auroral Ultraviolet Radiance Analyzer satellite payload was developed and prepared for satellite launch. The design and technical approach for these instruments, along with measured results, were presented in a scientific paper.
