IRACproc: IRAC Post-BCD Processing

Abstract: IRACproc is a software suite that facilitates the co-addition of dithered or mapped Spitzer/IRAC data to make them ready for further analysis with application to a wide variety of IRAC observing programs. The software runs within PDL, a numeric extension for Perl available from, and as stand alone perl scripts. In acting as a wrapper for the Spitzer Science Center's <a href="">MOPEX</a> software, IRACproc improves the rejection of cosmic rays and other transients in the co-added data. In addition, IRACproc performs (optional) Point Spread Function (PSF) fitting, subtraction, and masking of saturated stars.
