Paper Abstract

The camera of the Infrared Space Observatory (ISOCAM) was carefulfy tested and cafibrated from 1991 to 1992 in the dedicated facifity instafled at Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiafe at Orsay, France. A farge cryostat with high-precision instrumentation was devefoped to provide an operation environment cfose to the conditions expected in orbit. The large amount of data obtained allows a thorough investigation of the imaging, photometric, and spectral properties of ISOCAM in all its operation modes, leading to the definition of hopefully optimal observing procedures and data-processing algorithms.
