Instrumentation and Operations
The general design of the Tübingen Ultraviolet Echelle Spectrograph (TUES) was discussed by Grewing et al. (1991; in Extreme Ultraviolet Astronomy, ed. R. Malina & S. Bowyer, p. 422), and a general review of the instrument and mission can be found in Appenzeller et al. (1998, in Ultraviolet Astrophysics: Beyond the Final IUE Archive, ed. W. Wamsteker & R. Gonzalez-Riestra, p. 757).

The TUES was deployed as part of the ORFEUS/SPAS-2 platform by the
Columbia Space Shuttle on November 19, 1996, and operated for 14 days of the
Shuttle's 17-day mission (STS-80). Once deployed, ORFEUS conducted program
observations by receiving real-time ground commands from Drs. Ron Polidan,
Richard Miller, and Peter Vedder at the Kennedy Spacecraft Center Operations
& Control Center.
