Provide deep, wide-field, thermal
infrared (2-5 micron) imaging capability
for key sources in the southern
hemisphere, such as...
Large Magellanic Cloud
Galactic Center
Active star formation regions
Young clusters
Mass-losing evolved stars
Provide this capability to the
astronomical community at large
Call for proposals: fall 98; time assignments:
winter/spring 99
Development of high-throughput, comprehensive
data processing pipeline
Explore and demonstrate potential of
Antarctica as a site for IR astronomy
