- The Spacelab Lyman Alpha Coronagraph (SLAC) of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) and the White Light Coronagraph (WLC) to be provided by the High Altitude Observatory (HAO) are two separate coronagraphs which would be operated in a joint fashion during Spacelab missions to be flown by the Space Shuttle. The two instruments would be used to perform joint observations of solar coronal structures from 1.2 to 8.0 solar radii from sun-center in vacuum ultraviolet and visible radiations. Temperatures, densities, and flow velocities throughout the solar wing acceleration region of the inner solar corona were measured. The Phase I Definition activity resulted in the successful definition and preliminary design of the experiment/instrumentation subsystem and associated software, ground support equipment and interfaces to the extended required to accurately estimate the scope of the investigation and prepare an Investigational Development Plan; the performance of the necessary functional, operations, and safety analyses necessary to complete the Experiment Requirements document.
