Paper Abstract

‘Emu’ is a compact wide-field photometer destined for a 6-month mission on the exterior of the International Space Station (ISS), commencing in 2021. Emu will undertake a sky survey in the 1.4 μm ‘water band’, as a method of estimating oxygen abundance in the atmospheres of cool stars down to a magnitude of mAB≈13 (H-band).
