Paper Abstract

Wide-Field Infrared Explorer, an instrument proposed for a NASA Small Explorer mission, is designed to measure the 12 to 25 mm radiation of starburst galaxies. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory provides project management and science leadership. The Space Dynamics Laboratory at Utah State University will build and integrate the instrument. The cryostat will be built at the Lockheed Palo Alto Research Laboratory.
