Paper Abstract

Rocket-borne cryogenic cooled infrared telescopes have been used for infrared and submillimeter measurements of the celestial background, atmospheric and auroral emission spectra, multicolor observations of the interplanetary medium, H II region, galactic center region and the cosmic background. This paper reviews some of the technology developed for rocketborne cryogenically cooled infrared systems and outlines its potential applications for future satellite infrared systems.
