Author(s): Masatomo Harada; Haruyoshi Katayama; Masataka Naitoh

Paper Abstract

The compact infrared camera (CIRC) is a technology demonstration instrument that Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is developing by using commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technology in recent years. CIRC is an infrared camera equipped with an uncooled infrared array detector (microbolometer). CIRC will be utilized for various technology demonstrations. This paper introduces the current development status of CIRC and the initial results of characteristics of the CIRC ground test model (Engineering Model; EM) that has been studied with laboratory experiments.
