The infrared astronomy satellite AKARI has made all-sky surveys at six wavelength bands (9, 18 µm with the Infrared Camera (IRC), 65, 90, 140, and 160 µm with the Far-Infrared Surveyor (FIS)). The first version of the FIS Bright Source Catalogue (β−1) has been provided to the AKARI science team for initial astronomical analyses. The catalogue will be made public in Autumn 2009 after further revisions. The IRC point source catalogue is in parallel preparation.
