Airborne Visible Infrared Imaging Spectrometer Data Facility, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA
Data Center Description
The AVIRIS Data Facility, or ADF,is responsible for low-level processing (up to level 1B), data archiving, and data distribution, along with assisting the hardware team in judging the performance of the AVIRIS instrument and modeling instrument anomalies. The nominal processing chain is as follows: Receipt of AVIRIS Instrument tape
-Tape scan and run confirmation Download and decommutation of first and last science runs Archive and quicklook generation of first and last science runs Performance Evaluation Program (PEP) execution
-Download and decommutation of remaining runs
-Archive and quicklook generation of remaining runs
-"Reduced" quicklook processing for all runs and insertion into the AVIRIS Anonymous FTP Site.
In addition, output products are generated and distributed based on requests in a queue independent of the above chain. Outside the processing chains are tasks like making images for presentations and the JPL Public Information Office.
