Extragalactic Component

The extragalactic component of the FLS includes:

  • A 4 square degree imaging survey with IRAC and MIPS to a shallow depth of about one minute per pixel on the sky
  • Within the above area, a MIPS/IRAC verification survey of about 0.2 square degrees or less, with ten times the integration time.
  • Incorporation of ancillary data recommended, primarily for identification purposes.

The detailed design requirements are available below.
