COBRAS/SAMBA is an ESA mission designed for extensive, accurate mapping of the anisotropies of the cosmic background radiation, with angular sensitivity from sub-degree scales up to and overlapping with the COBE-DMR resolution. This will allow a full identification of the primordial density perturbations which grew to form the large-scale structures observed in the present universe. Here the authors present the scientific goals and the key characteristics of the model payload and observation strategy.
