Results obtained during a number of space experiments on the Earth limb observations in IR have been analyzed and summarized. For the primary molecular emission bands the changes of intensity due to variations in ionosphere conditions (night-lime or sun-lighting conditions, auroral activity) and for different heights are. discussed. An urgent demand for studying the results of infrared emission spectrum of the ionosphere has arisen during the project «Warning» preparation. The aim of the project is a careful study of ionospheric disturbances due to seismic activity including investigation of ionospheric emissions in the optical and infrared range.
