[3.04] The EUVE Data Processing Pipeline: A Descriptive Overview

J. S. McDonald, A. Wiercigroch, K. E. McDonald, B. Antia, and B.A. Stroozas (CEA/UCB)

The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) Pipeline is a set of software tools used to convert EUVE binary telemetry into useful science data products. It is used to process data from both the EUVE all-sky survey and the EUVE Guest Observer program. We follow the journey of several hundred seconds of EUVE binary telemetry, which was produced when a particularly bright EUV source was being scanned during the survey, through the various parts of the EUVE Pipeline, ending up with the final products (skymaps and pigeonholes). We present data collected from this source at various stages of processing in the pipeline.

This work was supported by NASA contract NAS5-29298.
