Abstract
How to meet the functional schedule of specifications of an IR instrument, as we know that the parameters of such an instrument, such as the diameter of pupil, the integration time, the wavelengths, bandwidths and focal plane array are not only interdependent, and also depend on the functional schedule of specifications. The complexity of an IR instrument, with its environment, and the observation geometry in movement force us to make choices that are sometimes difficult and often contradictory. We manage this complexity by building abacuses which make it possible to show how the system evolves/moves according to possible choices. Those abacuses thus enable us to determine the preliminary design of the instrument which will enable us it possible to meet its functional schedule of specifications.
