Abstract: This paper describes the objectives of the Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) Solar Ultraviolet Magnetograph Investigation (SUMI) and the optical components that have been developed to meet those objectives. A sounding rocket payload is being developed to test the feasibility of magnetic-field measurements in the Sun's transition region. The optics have been optimized for simultaneous measurements of two magnetic lines formed in the transition region (C IV 1550 Å and Mg II 2800 Å). Finally, we illustrate the polarization properties of the SUMI polarimeter and toroidal variable-line-space gratings.
