The objectives of the Far Infrared Sky Survey Experiment (FIRSSE) are to obtain unbiased measurements of the position and radiance of infrared celestial sources in five spectral bands between 8 and 120 µm. The superfluid helium cooled sensor will be flown on an Aries sounding rocket sometime in 1980. The status of the sensor is presented in this paper.
