Optionally select the datatype, mission to search and/or time range

You can also search for files associated with an un-extracted data subscription by entering the subscription ID in the field provided
By default, files matching the subscription for the previous 3 days will be retrieved. Enter a start date to change this behavior.

A start time can be entered without an end time, however if an end time is specified, a start time must be entered
You can opt to have the results returned as a list in a text file with or without a URL prefix prepended

IF the query returns more than 500 records, the results will be in the form of a text file for downloading
