Paper Abstract

The Calibration Database System for the Hubble Telescope is a system for calibration data reception, data processing, cataloging, archiving, and delivery to Space Telescope's ground system calibration pipeline and to public on-line archives. A description of this system and access to the calibration data is now available through the Internet on the World Wide Web. The data consists of spectral standards, stellar and galaxy atlases, and the calibration reference data from the five science instruments on Hubble. The calibration data of the instruments; cameras, spectrographs, and the fine guidance sensor; are used to correct for such properties as field flatness, distortion, and sensitivities, among others. Descriptions of the database system, the data, and the web site will be presented here.
