Abstract
The objective of the Far Infrared Sky Survey Experiment (FIRSSE) is to measure the spatial and brightness distribution of the celestial background and astronomical sources in the wavelength region between 8 µm and 120 µm. A superfluid helium (2.2K) cooled sensor with background photon noise limited detector arrays will be flown on an Aries sounding rocket. This paper outlines the current design concept of the sensor and focal plane array layout of the experiment.
