The Spitzer SERVS/DeepDrill Project // The SERVS and DeepDrill programs are Spitzer Exploration Science projects taken in the post-cryogenic era. Together they image 36deg^2 of sky to 2muJy depth at 3.6 and 4.5 microns, including three of the four pre-defined LSST Deep Drilling fields. In this talk I will describe some of the opportunities and challenges presented by this unique dataset, which also have complementary deep data at other wavebands. I will discuss science highlights from the project so far, including advances in our understanding of radio sources and faint submm galaxies, and also explain how adopting forced photometry techniques has allowed us to begin to exploit the full potential of the dataset.
