Basic design and current development status of IRC; Infrared camera onboard the IRIS (Infrared Imaging Surveyor) is presented. IRC employs state-of-the-art large-format IR arrays for imaging and low-resolution spectroscopy at wavelength 2-25 μm. IRC consists of 3 cameras; NIR (2-5 μm), MIR-S (5-12 μm), and MIR-L (12-25 μm). These 3 channels simultaneously observe different fields (10′×10′ FOV each) of the sky, with diffraction-limited spatial resolution.
