Paper Abstract

NIRCam is a highly sensitive, multi-spectral, high-resolution, cryogenic, compact, light-weight, and rugged near infra-red camera on the James Webb Space Telescope. The successful development of NIRCam is aided by good system engineering practice. This is a discussion of important elements of NIRCam System Engineering with some light-hearted contrast to a more common activity.
