Paper Abstract

We have constructed an archive system for NRAO telescopes using mainly tools available in the Astronomical Information Processing System (AIPS++). Since the tools are available to anyone using AIPS++, this amounts to a generic archive capability for any telescope for which the AIPS++ data conversion program exists. The rich tool set available in AIPS++ has enabled very rapid development: our entire effort took no more than about 1 FTE-year. Additional capabilities were required to connect AIPS++ to the web. The system is now being deployed at the NRAO as a prototype archive system for the Very Large Array with deployment for the Green Bank Telescope and Very Long Baseline Array planned for 2003.
