Abstract
CIRRIS (Cryogenic Infrared Radiance Instrumentation for Shuttle) is a high resolution, cryogenic, Michelson interferometer-spectrometer coupled to a high straylight rejection telescope with coaligned photometer and cameras. CIRRIS is designed to explore the infrared phenomenology of the upper atmosphere from 30-300 km in the 2.5 - 25um LWIR region. In addition, CIRRIS will measure and characterize the gaseous and particle contamination in the Space Shuttle environment. This paper will describe the objectives, instrument fea-tures, and mission profile as they pertain to these measurements.
