Sky Surveys in the Thermal IR from Dome C
LUAN/UNSA-UMR 6525, Nice, France
Dome C CONCORDIA offers very low infrared sky background conditions well suited to broad-band imaging surveys beyond 2.3 μm. I briefly describe the scientific interest of extending the recent 2 μm surveys in this spectal range, and the main lines of a project that would eventually lead to a large facility aimed at high angular resolution imaging and spectro-imaging (AMIDST project), with a first step dedicated to monitoring the IR sky background emission (AIRBUS experiment).
