Imaging Spectrometric Observatory (ISO) Spacelab 1 - STS-9

The Spacelab Imaging Spectrometric Observatory (ISO) comprises an array of five spectrometers designed to make full use of the Space Shuttle as an observing platform for atmosphere remote sensing, and covers the 300-12,000-A wavelength range with a 2-7 A resolution. Area array detectors can scan the entire wavelength range in less than 20 sec and, being two-dimensional, permit spectral imaging in one direction and spatial imaging on the other.
