Abstract: ADAHELI ADvanced Astronomy for HELIophysics is a solar satellite designed to investigate the fast dynamics of the solar photosphere and chromosphere performing visible and NIR broad-band and monochromatic observations of selected atomic lines. ADAHELI is an Italian Space Agency (ASI) project, approved for a feasibility study within the ASI Small Missions call. ISODY Interferometer for SOlar DYnamics is a Gregorian telescope and its focal plane suite (FPS). The FPS is composed of a high-resolution fast acquisition system, based upon a tandem of Fabry-Perot interferometers operating in the visible and NIR regions on selected solar atmospheric lines, a broad band channel, and a correlation tracker used as image stabilization system. In this contribution we describe the Fabry-Perot etalon prototype, based on the capacitance-stabilised concept, realized in our laboratory to perform preliminary mechanical and optical tests with a view to a future Fabry-Perot etalon prototype for space application.
