Spitzer Documentation & Tools
Instrument Campaigns

Please see this page for warm mission campaigns.

Spitzer could only operate one science instrument at a time, so Spitzer observing time was divided into dedicated instrument campaigns typically lasting 7-21 days. The list below summarizes which instruments were on at what times. The first two columns in the table below reflect two different naming schemes for the campaigns. The first column is simply a sequential numbering of the campaigns; the second column is the official campaign name and reflects the internal Operations Database designation for a campaign. The official campaign name is what is needed to conduct campaign searches in the Spitzer Heritage Archive (SHA) at the NASA/IPAC Infrared Science Archive (IRSA).
