Paper Abstract

The camera of the Infrared Space Observatory was carefully tested and calibrated during two years (1991 - 1992) in the dedicated facility installed at Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale at Orsay. A large cryostat with high-precision instrumentation was developed, in order to provide an operation environment close 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.
