The Short Wavelength Spectrometer was a joint effort by:

  • Space Research Organisation of the Netherlands in Groningen (SRON-G) and Utrecht (SRON-U)
  • Max Planck Institut für extraterrestrische Physik (MPE), Garching, Germany.

With contributions from:

  • Instituut voor Sterrenkunde, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL), Belgium
  • Steward Observatory, University of Arizona, AZ, USA
  • Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Hanscom AFB, MA, USA.

Many other groups contributed to the success of this instrument. In particular:

  • The ISO Data Centre (IDC) in Villafranca, Spain
  • Astronomical Institute Anton Pannekoek, University of Amsterdam (UvA), The Netherlands
  • Kapteyn Astronomical Institute, University of Groningen (RUG), The Netherlands
  • Leiden Observatory, University of Leiden, The Netherlands.
