Abstract: Cosmic ray rejection (deglitching) is one of the challenging data analysis problems for ISOCAM, the infrared camera on board ESA's Infrared Space Observatory (ISO). Artifacts, caused by undetected glitches, limit the calibration accuracy and sensitivity, and directly influence the quality of the final data products. We present five new deglitching algorithms suited for different types of ISOCAM data and discuss their applicability. We also show examples demonstrating the improvements gained by these deglitching techniques.
