Paper Abstract

AKARI is the first Japanese astronomical infrared satellite mission orbiting around the Earth in a sun-synchronous polar orbit at the altitude of 700 km. One of the major observation programs of the AKARI is an all-sky survey in the mid- to far-infrared spectral regions with 6 photometric bands. The mid-infrared part of the AKARI All-Sky Survey was carried out with the Infrared Camera (IRC) at the 9 and 18 µm bands with the sensitivity of about 50 and 120 mJy (5σ per scan), respectively. The spatial resolution is about 9.4" at both bands. AKARI mid-infrared (MIR) all-sky survey substantially improves the MIR dataset of the IRAS survey of two decades ago and provides a significant database for studies of various fields of astronomy ranging from star-formation and debris disk systems to cosmology. This paper describes the current status of the data reduction and the characteristics of the AKARI MIR all-sky survey data.
