A balloon-borne spectrometer package was tested under simulated flight conditions of temperature and pressure within an environmental chamber to evaluate the system operation. The system operated satisfactorily except for the pointing control and scan limit switch. These problems were generally related to low temperature effects, and the addition of a heater cleared up the pointing control problem.
