MISR Optical Bench

MISR Optical Bench

This is the "science part" of the MISR instrument, which includes the cameras and calibration equipment. The photograph was taken in October 1996, as MISR was being assembled. Subsequently, the parts that supply power, communications, and temperature control were added. The entire package was then encased in a protective housing, which was covered with highly reflecting thermal blankets.
