Using $0.005 cm^{-1}$ resolution Fourier transform spectra of $^{18}O$-enriched ozone smaples, it has been possible to perform an extensive analysis of the $\nu_{1}$ and $\nu_{3}$ bands of the two isotopic species $^{18}O^{16}O^{18}O$ and $^{18}O^{18}O^{18}O$. The experimental rotaional energy levels of the (100) and (001) vibrtional states of both species were then reproduced with the aid of an Hamiltonian taking explicilty into account the Coriolis interaction affecting the upper vibrational states. Preccise vibrational energies and rotational constants were derived and used together with an appropriate expansion of the transformed transition moment operators of the $\nu_{1}$ and $\nu_{3}$ bands to generate a comlete and reliable list of line positions and intensities for both the isotopic species $^{18}O^{16}O^{18}O$ and $^{18}O^{18}O^{18}O$.
