Paper Abstract

The revised baseline mission concept of the Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF) has assumed that the infrared array camera (IRAC), one of three focal plane instruments designed for SIRTF, will be removed from SIRTF and carried out collaboratively on the Japanese- launched Infrared Imaging Surveyor (IRIS) mission. The IRIS mission is an approved program scheduled for launch in 2001. In addition to IRAC, which will cover the 3 - 8 micron wavelength region, the proposed IRIS mission will also contain a mid-infrared array camera and a far-infrared scanner, consisting of three linear array detectors. We review the scientific requirements and design of IRAC required for incorporation into IRIS.
