- Close to diffraction limited resolving power (1 arcsec or less in the UV and VIS spectra)- Close to 100% atmospheric transmission in the NUV (http://bit.ly/uv-trans) , VIS, and NIR (http://bit.ly/ir-trans)- Limited atmospheric background that ease spectroscopy and allow daytime observations for certain applications- Observations independent of weather conditions- Flight altitude ca. 35 km- Duration between several hours and up to 100 days possible

To design the payload and final infrastructure we are seeking input from different teams that can have different science cases and can be interested in the final infrastructure. So please fill out the following questionaire.
If you are interested in several different configurations, please fill this form several times. Keep in mind that the infrastructure could be modular, so some modules can be permanent and other modules can be temporal.
