Paper Abstract

The Laboratory for Astronomy and Solar Physics at the Goddard Space Flight Center currently has two astronomy experiments approved for flight on Shuttle. These experiments will each produce on the order of 1.0 Ell bits of data per flight. Blind batch processing of the total data sets would far exceed the data processing budgets. Moreover, not all of the data frames will be useable. Therefore it will be necessary to carefully select those images or spectra that contain the most useful scientific results. This can be done with an interactive display and analysis system that lets the scientist view and react with his data in a timely fashion. This paper will describe the interactive Astronomical Data Analysis Facility, IADAF, of the Laboratory for Astronomy and Solar Physics and how each of our experimenters will use this facility in conjunction with his own data analysis program.
