Paper Abstract

We introduce a Japanese future plan of the IR space astrometry(JASMINE-project). JASMINE is an infrared(K-band) scanning astrometric satellite. JASMINE(I and/or II-project) is planned to be launched between 2013 and 2015 and will measure parallaxes, positions and proper motions with the precision of 10 microarcsec at K=12~14mag. JASMINE can observe about a few hundred million stars belonging to the disk and the bulge components of our Galaxy, which are hidden by the interstellar dust extinction in optical bands. Furthermore JASMINE will also measure the photometries of stars in K, J and H-bands. The main objective of JASMINE is to study the fundamental structure and evolution of the disk and the bulge components of the Milky Way Galaxy. Furthermore its important objective is to investigate stellar physics.
