The resulting image is 254arcmin2 in size and has a sensitivity ranging between ∼12 and ∼30uJy rms, with a median sensitivity of ∼20uJy rms. A total of 495 sources have been catalogued with a signal-to-noise ratio greater than 5σ. The source catalog is presented as well as source counts which have been corrected for completeness and flux boosting. The IR sources are then combined with MUSYC optical/NIR and ATHDFS radio observations to obtain redshifts and radio flux densities of the sample. We use the IR/radio flux density ratio (q24) to explore the IR-radio correlation for this IR sample and find q24=0.71±0.31 for sources detected in both IR and radio. The results are extended by stacking IR sources not detected in the radio observations and we derive an average q24 for redshift bins between 0<z<2.5. We find that the high-redshift (z>1) sources have an average q24 ratio which is better fit by local LIRG SEDs rather than local ULIRG SEDs, indicating that high-redshift ULIRGs differ in their IR/radio properties. So, ULIRGs at high-redshift have SEDs different from those found locally. Infrared-faint radio sources are examined, and while nine radio sources do not have an MIPS detection and are therefore radio-loud active galactic nuclei (AGNs), only one radio source has an extreme IRAC 3.6um to radio flux density ratio indicating it is a radio-loud AGN at z>1. Description: The MIPS 24um observations of the HDF-S were carried out over two campaigns. The first was in 2004 as part of the guaranteed time observations (GTOs; PI: Fazio) and the second in 2007 Cycle 3 observations (PID 30873, PI: Labbe). The radio observations of the HDF-S were made between 1998 and 2001 with the Australia Telescope Compact Array using all four available frequency bands. Between 100 and 300hr of observing at each band yielded images at 1.4, 2.5, 5.2, and 8.7GHz with maximum sensitivities of ∼10uJy rms (Huynh et al. 2005, Cat. J/AJ/130/1373; 2007, Cat. J/AJ/133/1331).

Note (1): Only ATHDFS_J223205.9-603857 is faint enough at 3.6um to meet the original infrared-faint radio source (IFRS) definition of Norris et al. (2006, Cat. J/AJ/132/2409). All of these sources have q24 values suggestive of radio-loud AGNs. Note (2): Flag as follows: b = Not detected in MUSYC optical imaging. c = IRAC image of source has artifacts, so photometry is inaccurate. d = Out of IRAC coverage.
