Abstract
The camera of the Infrared Space Observatory (ISOCAM) was carefulfy tested and cafibrated from 1991 to 1992 in the dedicated facifity instafled at Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiafe at Orsay, France. A farge cryostat with high-precision instrumentation was devefoped to provide an operation environment cfose to the conditions expected in orbit. The large amount of data obtained allows a thorough investigation of the imaging, photometric, and spectral properties of ISOCAM in all its operation modes, leading to the definition of hopefully optimal observing procedures and data-processing algorithms.
