IRAIT (International Robotic Antarctic Infrared Telescope) is a telescope with an 80 cm aperture, ready for installation at Dome C. Equipped with AMICA (Antarctic Multiband Infrared CAmera), the main focal plane instrument, it will observe in near (1–5 μ) and mid infrared regions (5–28 μ), benefiting from the exceptional site characteristics. The installation will start in December 2007. An overview of interfacing devices and the integration of various IRAIT subsystems are here presented.
