End-to-End System Test of the Relative Precision and Stability of the Photometric Method for Detecting Earth-Size Extrasolar PlanetsWe developed the CCD camera system for the laboratory test demonstration and designed the optical system for this test. The camera system was delivered to Ames in April, 1999 with continuing support mostly in the software area as the test progressed. The camera system has been operating successfully since delivery. The optical system performed well during the test. The laboratory demonstration activity is now nearly complete and is considered to be successful by the Technical Advisory Group, which met on 8 February, 2000 at the SETI Institute. A final report for the Technical Advisory Group and NASA Headquarters will be produced in the next few months. This report will be a comprehensive report on all facets of the test including those covered under this grant. A copy will be forwarded, if desired, when it is complete.
