i. Single-Exposure Image Header Description

The WISE single-exposure images are in FITS format.

An extensive image header is added to the raw fits image data during the ingest process (IV.2). The header consists of two main sections: keywords extracted directly from the engineering housekeeping (H/K) data, and non-H/K keywords. H/K data are sampled at various rates and not synched with the acquisition of the image data. The H/K data file is downlinked and transfered to WSDC where all measurements are stored in a database. During the ingest process, this database is searched for the value of a particular keyword closest in time to the DATE-OBS mid-exposure image data acquisition time. Hence there is a time difference between DATE-OBS and the time the keyword was sampled. The header keywords HK_MINDT and HK_MAXDT (see table below) indicate the minimum and maximum time difference for all H/K derived header values.

Times in the non-H/K section of the header are all computed from various ancillary files. The times saved in the image source packet headers are from the spacecraft (S/C) clock at the time the first data reach the MUB, which is within a few msecs of the end of the exposure. It will take another 1.1 sec for the last pixels to reach the MUB. During ingest, a constant offset of -4.853 sec (indicated by the header keyword FRMTOFF) is added to this time and saved as the frame time. This time stamp corresponds to the midpoint of the track followed by the boresite during the exposure.

An example of a single-exposure image header can be found in Table 2.

Notes to Table 1

[1] In Version 3.5 processing, BUNIT is incorrectly listed as 'DN' (instead of 'null') in the mask (msk) images.

[2] In Version 3.5 processing, the FILETYPE is incorrectly given as 'intensity image frame' instead of 'mask image frame' and 'uncertainty image frame' for the mask (msk) and uncertainty (unc) images, respectively.

[3] Various event keywords only appear in the header if the data were taken during one of these possible events:

 'SAA'= within pre-defined SAA boundary
 'MOON'= within moon keepout zone
 'MOM'= momentum dumping
 'OCCULTED'= Sun is occulted
 'IMCAL'= image calibration
 'DESC'= we are in a descending scan
 'SCAN'= yes, we are in a science scan (you should always see this)
 'ASCE'= we are in an ascending scan
 'NEP' = North ecliptic pole crossing
 'SEP' = South ecliptic pole crossing
 '12PM', '6AM', '6PM', '12AM' = Orbit points
The events are listed in the header keyword INEVENTS. For each event, an additional header entry is created, starting with 'EV'. The keyword value corresponds to the time since the event began. In the example header, the events ASCE and SCAN occur as listed under INEVENTS. Hence, the additional keywords EVASCE and EVSCAN are added to the header of this particular image:
INEVENTS= 'ASCE   SCAN'        / Active orbit events
EVASCE  =     2424.80147141218 / [sec] Time since orbit event start
EVSCAN  =      1663.1124714613 / [sec] Time since orbit event start

[4] -9999 or -999 indicate "no value"

[5] In Version 3.5 processing, the H/K derived header keyword description fields are missing. Instead of the description, the mnemonic and the time since the keyword was last sampled in the H/K database are listed. The correct keyword description is provided here for reference.

[6] WISE has two redundant scan mirror assemblies, indicated by [A] and [B].

[7] For single exposure products in the preliminary release, MAGZPUNC is always -999 (undefined) and the derivation of MAGZP was not dynamic, hence PCAL always has a value of 0.
