Paper Abstract

A revised baseline mission concept for the Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF) has been developed by the SIRTF science and engineering teams over the past year. This mission, which would be carried into solar orbit by a Delta 7920 launch vehicle, retains the key scientific capabilities of earlier mission concepts at a fraction of the mass and cost. We review the scientific and technical innovations which have enabled this development.
