Paper Abstract

IRSA's scaleable and extensible architecture is inherited by new missions and data providers, and thus offers substantial cost savings to missions. It has built archives for the W.M. Keck Observatory & the Spitzer Space Telescope Legacy teams, among others. It provided archiving and databases support for 2MASS, when active, and will provide corresponding support for the forthcoming WISE mission. IRSA acts as a resource to projects and missions by advising on product design and providing tools for validating data products.
