JWST Instruments

The JWST instrument suite will consist of three science instruments. Unlike the Hubble Space Telescope, the JWST will be in a second Lagrange point orbit and will not be serviceable. Therefore, these will be the only instruments JWST will ever have.

MIRI Mid Infrared Instrument
NIRCam Near Infrared Camera
NIRSpec Near Infrared Spectrograph
FGS-TFI Fine Guidance Sensor Tunable Filter Imager
