The Hipparcos Input Catalogue has been compiled, over the period , as the definitive observing catalogue for the European Space Agency's Hipparcos satellite, launched on 8 August The Hipparcos Input Catalogue was constructed as the observing programme for the European Space Agency’s Hipparcos astrometry mission.

  The Hipparcos Catalog running number, which is the same as the that in the Hipparcos Input Catalog. The star entries are, with a few exceptions, ordered by increasing HIP number, which basically follows the order of the object's right ascension (Equinox J) . The Hipparcos Input Catalog contains more stars, but the proper motions are not as good and the photometry is not as consistent. hipinput, sorted by ID number, is in J coordinates. It is used by the program scat when the Hipparcos Input Catalog number is known and position, magnitude, and/or spectral type information is desired. Catalogue—thus the Hipparcos Input Catalogue may conveniently be used to ascertain corresponding pre-Hipparcos data, cross-identifications, etc. Entries in the catalogue are referred to by their Hipparcos Catalogue (or HIP) number, emphasising that the data items associated with this number are different from those associated with the. The ESA Astrometry satellite Hipparcos is due to be launched in early It will measure very precise positions, parallaxes and proper motions for about stars. However, in order to be included in the Input Catalogue, the programme stars should have positions and magnitudes known in advance with respective accuracies of about 1″ and magnitude.

The Hipparcos Input Catalogue has been compiled, over the period , as the definitive observing catalog for the ESA's Hipparcos satellite, launched on 8 August It contains the most up-to-date, comprehensive, and homogeneous information on the , stars being observed by Hipparcos.

The numerous activities carried out in order to establish the Hipparcos Input Catalogue are presented in this book. Starting from more than proposed observing programmes and scientific recommendations from the ESA Hipparcos Selection Committee, the goal of the INCA Consortium was to obtain a catalogue containing as many high-priorty objects as possible while bearing in mind the .   The Hipparcos Input Catalogue formed the mission's observing programme: it contained over target stars that Hipparcos would monitor to obtain their astrometric properties. The catalogue was compiled at the Observatoire de Paris - Meudon, France, and involved the collaboration of a large number of ESA Member State scientists.
