    86The Herschel Space Telescope is the fourth cornerstone mission in the ESA science program.  When launched in October 2008, Herschel will be the largest space telescope of its kind when launched. Herschel's 3.5-metre diameter mirror will collect long-wavelength infrared radiation from some of the coolest and most distant objects in the Universe. Herschel will be the only space observatory to cover the spectral range from far-infrared to sub-millimeter wavelengths.
     
    1614ESA's Herschel mission has been designed specifically to achieve these goals. With its ability to detect far-infrared light, it will let astronomers see, for the first time, dusty and cold regions that have been hidden so far. With its 3.5-metre mirror, Herschel will mark the beginning of a new generation of 'space giants'.

    18 The Herschel  Spacecraft Management Unit (SMU) was built by Saab Ericsson Space.  The SMU’s Processor Module is built around a SPARC V7 processor, the TSC695F, and custom I/O ASIC. 
     16The two main computers of Herschel, the Command and Data Management Unit (CDMU) and the Attitude Control Computer (ACC) are instances of the [wiki:TBR/UserApp/Space/RUAG_Spacecraft_Management_Unit RUAG Spacecraft Management Unit] (SMU). In Herschel, the SMU’s Processor Module is built around a SPARC V7 processor, the TSC695F, and a custom I/O ASIC.
