Abstract
The ISIS (International Satellites for Ionospheric Studies) programme is a joint US-Canada effort in which Canada is responsible for the design and construction of a series of four spacecraft that are launched by the United States. It was preceded by another joint programme, Alouette I. In order to provide background the paper describes the experimental make-up of Alouette I together with some of the system design considerations. Attention is then given to the general objectives of the ISIS programme and how these are being met by succeeding satellites in the series.
