Paper Abstract

ISOCAM, a camera to be flown onboard the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) satellite of the European Space Agency, is described. The camera consists of three parts: an optical bench located at the telescopes's focal plane over a support platform, within the cooled portion of the spacecraft; lukewarm electronics fitted to the Cryostat's walls; and hot, processing electronics located within the service module, over the Cryostat's exterior. The ISOCAM camera uses two channels that cover either 2.5 - 5.5 or 4 - 17 microns bands.
