Spitzer Documentation & Tools

Purpose and Description

The Customizable User Pipeline for IRS Data (CUPID) allows users to run the Spitzer IRS Pipelines to re-create Basic Calibrated Data and extract calibrated spectra from the archived raw files. CUPID provides full access to all the parameters of the BCD, COADD, BKSUB, BKSUBX, and COADDX pipelines, as well as the opportunity for users to provide their own calibration files (e.g., flats or darks). We recommend users read the documents listed below before running CUPID.

CUPID System Requirements

CUPID is currently available for Mac, Linux, and Solaris operating systems.
