SPIRE, the Spectral and Photometric Imaging Receiver, is Herschel's submillimetre camera and spectrometer. It comprises a three-band imaging photometer operating at 250, 350 and 500 µm, and an imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS) covering 194–672 µm. The design of SPIRE is described, and the expected scientific performance is summarised, based on modelling and flight instrument test results.
