    • Abstract

       

      The ground data processing, archival and dissemination of the science data for India’s first multi wavelength astronomical spacecraft, AstroSat is carried out from Indian Space Science Data Centre (ISSDC). The proposals submitted by users worldwide are grouped into observations and are observed inmultiple orbit segments. Large volume of data in various configurations from different payloads and the inherent diversity of data products resulting from observations had demanded intricate procedures in handling the data processing, archival and dissemination scenario at ISSDC. The paper describes the layered approach followed in implementing a software stack for establishing and operating a completely automated pipeline for data processing, archival and dissemination of astronomical data. The operations of the automated pipeline, challenges faced during the implementation and the strategies adapted to overcome them are also summarized.

      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.
