Abstract (from CDS):

Odin is a satellite with a combined astronomy and aeronomy mission. It is designed for observations of species difficult or impossible to observe from ground, especially water and oxygen. The main instrument is a radiometer, operating in the frequency range 486-581GHz and at 118.75GHz. Its double-reflector telescope has a 1.1m primary and the front-end amplifiers are cooled for maximum sensitivity. A 3-axis-stabilisation system provides a pointing accuracy better than 10". Odin was developed on behalf of the space agencies in Sweden, Canada, France and Finland and was launched into a sun synchronous circular orbit in February 2001. The Odin Science Team, composed of astronomers and aeronomers from the partner countries, has established the observing programme and is responsible for all scientific matters regarding the Odin project. The spacecraft and instruments are performing well and operations are expected to continue well beyond the nominal two-year lifetime.
