    • Abstract

       

      Performance of the Level-2 pipeline, which translates the UVIT data created by the ISRO’s ground segment processing systems (Level-1) into astronomer ready scientific data products, is described. This pipeline has evolved significantly from experiences during the in orbit mission. With time, the detectormodules of UVIT developed certain defects which led to occasional corruption of imaging and timing data. This article will describe the improvements and mitigation plans incorporated in the pipeline and report its efficacy and quantify the performance.

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
