Instrument Scientist:  

The Rapid infrared IMAger Spectrometer (RIMAS) is under construction at the Goddard Space Flight Center in partnership with the Astronomy Department of the University of Maryland at College Park.  RIMAS is expected to arrive at LDT in 2022 with commissioning scheduled before release to users.  RIMAS was designed for Target of Opportunity (ToO) observations and thus once commissioned RIMAS is expected to remain on Port A for some time to come in order to support ToO observations.
