Abstract

ISSIS is the Imaging and Slitless Spectroscopy Instrument for the World Space Observatory - Ultraviolet (WSO-UV), a 170 cm space telescope to be launched in late 2015. ISSIS is a multipurpose instrument designed to carry out high resolution and high sensitivity imaging and slitless spectroscopy in the ultraviolet range. ISSIS has two acquisition channels: the Far Ultraviolet Channel (FUV) covering the 1150-1750 angstrom wavelength range and the Near Ultraviolet Channel (NUV) in the 1850-3200 angstrom range. Both channels are equipped with Multi Channel Plate detectors to guarantee high sensitivity and high rejection of lower energy radiation. ISSIS will be the first UV imager into a high altitude Earth orbit and it will provide unique information on star formation, accretion physics, astronomical engines and planets
