    Should "product" be "products"?

    "Products are", not "product are."


    The primary data product ofWMAP are sets of calibrated sky
    maps at five frequency bands centered at 23 GHz (K band),
    33 GHz (Ka band), 41 GHz (Q band), 61 GHz (V band),
    and 94 GHz (W band), including measured noise levels and
    beam transfer functions that describe the smoothing of the
    sky signal resulting from the beam geometries. These maps
    are provided for Stokes I , Q, and U parameters on a year-by-
    year basis and in a year co-added format, and at several pixel
    resolutions appropriate for various analyses. Changes relative to
    the previous data release include the inclusion of seven years of
    observational data, a new masking procedure that simplifies the
    map-making process, and improvements of the beam maps and
    window functions. Details of the processing used to generate
    these products are described in the remainder of this work.

    Re: Should "product" be "products"?

    I'd say not necessarily. There is only one "primary data product" - the sets of maps. Other data products are not the primary product.
    Maybe: "
    The primary data product of WMAP is a set of calibrated sky maps ... "
