Abstract
The present status and potential future direction of the NASA space infrared astronomy program is reviewed. Projects and project concepts discussed include the Infrared Astronomy Satellite, Small Infrared Telescope on Spacelab 2, Cosmic Background Explorer, Shuttle Infrared Telescope Facility, Space Telescope, Large Deployable Reflector, Molecular Line Survey, and Infrared Interferometer in Space. Needs for continued engineering development in critical technology areas such as detectors, cryogenics, optics, and space structures are indicated.
