[21.03] The Infrared to Gamma-ray Connection for AGN: Spitzer Space Telescope to GLAST

A.E. Wehrle (Michelson Science Center, Caltech)

The Spitzer Space Telescope launched successfully in August 2003. If Spitzer's cryogen lasts in excess of five years, as is its goal, Spitzer and GLAST may both operate simultaneously. We envisage the intriguing possibility of AGN multiwavelength campaigns centered on these two space observatories. Spitzer is already observing several types of AGN with a wide range of redshift, luminosity and orientation angles. I will discuss new Spitzer observations, then describe how Spitzer and GLAST may both be used to address questions about the propagation of jets in AGN.
