Abstract
ISAMS is a temperature and composition sounder due to fly on the NASA UARS in 1989. The mission objectives, design rationale and expected performance are described. Features of this limb viewing infrared radiometer are its use of the pressure modulation technique of spectral selection and closed cycle cooling of the detectors to achieve background limited performance.
