Oct 24 2016 : Final Suzaku archive on-line
After the Suzaku mission was declared complete on Aug 28 2015 , all Suzaku data were re-processed with the latest software version and calibration information. The sequences were re-processed in two batches. The process started in May 2016 for the first batch and in July 2016 for the second batch to include the final XIS calibration that affected the sequences in the second run. The final archive was on-line on Oct 24 2016 simultaneously with the archive in Japan at DARTS.

The Suzaku data may also be accessed at:
