What instruments are available in Cycles 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13?

Cycles 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 will take place during the Spitzer 'warm' mission after the cryogenic mission ends. After cryogen depletion, the observatory continues operating using only the 3.6 and 4.5 micron channels on the IRAC instrument. The longer wavelength IRAC channels (5.6 and 8.0 microns) and the MIPS and IRS instruments will be unavailable. The IRAC Post-Cryo AOT must be used in Spot when submitting proposals.
