Abstract

In more than ten years of operations, the Spitzer Space Telescope has conducted a wide range of investigations from observing nearby asteroids to probing atmospheric properties of exoplanets to measuring masses of the most distance galaxies. Observations using the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) at 3.6 and 4.5um will continue through mid-2019 when the James Webb Space Telescope will succeed Spitzer. In anticipation of the eventual end of the mission, the basic calibrated data reduction pipeline designed to produce flux-calibrated images has been finalized and used to reprocess all the data taken during the Spitzer warm mission. We discuss all final modifications made to the pipeline.
