Abstract
The Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF) is a space-borne astronomical near-infrared to submillimeter telescope. Because of its high sensitivity, SIRTF will significantly increase observational capability over what is currently available. SIRTF is being developed by NASA to fly in the mid 90's. It will be carried to orbit by the Space Transportation System and placed in its final orbit by the Orbiting Maneuvering Vehicle.
