The Optical, Spectroscopic, and Infrared Remote Imaging System OSIRIS is the scientific camerasystem onboard the Rosetta spacecraft. OSIRIS will detect 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from a distance of more than 10<sup>6</sup> km,characterise the comet shape and volume, its rotational state and find a suitable landing spot for Philae, the Rosetta lander. OSIRIS will observe the nucleus, its activity and surroundings down to a scale of about 2 cm px<sup>-1</sup>. The observation will begin well before the onset of activity and will extend over month until the comet reaches perihelion. During the rendevous episode of the Rosetta mission, OSIRIS will provide key information about the nature of cometary nuclei and reveal the physics of cometary activity that leads to the gas and dust coma. OSIRIS comprises a high resolution Narrow Angel Camera unit and a Wide Angel Camera unit accompanied by three electronics boxes. The two units use identical shutter, filter wheel, front door, and detector systems. They are operated by a common Data Processing Unit. The OSIRIS instrument has a total mass of 35 kg and is provided by six European countries.
