Abstract

This article explains the basic philosophy of calibrating TAUVEX on the ground at the El-Op facilities in Israel, and in space after launch. We refer the reader to historical articles describing TAUVEX, its design and calibration, and update the knowledge base as to the modern testing and calibration procedures. We explicitly point out the products expected to result from the calibration process.
