What's New in HIPE 6

Line: 222 to 222
 

PACS

Pipeline

Changed:
<
<
  • Full functional slicing framework
    • used for spectrometer processing, only partly used for photometer processing
>
>
  • Fully functional slicing framework.
    • Used for spectrometer processing, only partly used for photometer processing.
 
  • Significant cleanup and re organisation of interactive processing scripts.
Changed:
<
<
  • New structure of Menu -> Pipeline -> PACS
  • A number of instrument mode specific user provided IA scripts are available now
>

  • A number of instrument-mode-specific user-provided IA scripts are available now.
 

Photometry

Changed:
<
<
  • Proposal for a two-stage photometer pipeline with masked highpass filtering implemented
  • MMT Deglitching may mask a glitch, although the signal would be unmodified
  • Improvements on data filtering (usage of BBID in removeCalBlocks, usage of scan legs etc.)
  • Significant improvements in the SSO astrometry (correctRaDec4Sso)
  • Full functional MadMap processing implementation inclusive of cross scans

  • Usage of elements of the Spectrum Explorer.
 
  • The fitter tool can now be used for all PACS products.

Calibration

Photometry

Spectroscopy

Changed:
<
<
  • New wavelength calibration applied by using the cal file wavePolynomes
  • The NominalResponse cal file is active, including the 1.3 and 1.1 ILT to flight conversion factors.
    • This means, if you process data you shall not apply these correction factors manually.

Analysis tools

  • Calibration framework : As of build 6.0.1452 the calibration framework will read the calibration

    • Please go through the process of installing the calibration products on your local machine.
    • During the HIPE startup process, the calibration framework will check for new updates in the background and notify you of any updates.
Changed:
<
<
    • If you want to start the update manually, go to the Tools>pacs-cal menu and select Run Updater...
>
>
    • If you want to start the update manually, go to the Tools > pacs-cal menu and select run Updater.
 
    • You can read more about the PACS Calibration Framework in the comprehensive document available in the public part of the Wiki.

  • Data Access : A new keyword is introduced to getObservation which allows the user to disable the Cache when using the HSA.
    • obs = getObservation(123456789, useHsa=True, useCache=False)
Changed:
<
<
    • This should solve many problems when the user just wants to download and save an observation from the HSA on his/her local machine, as the data will not be saved twice (once in the cache and once in the local store pool) anymore.

Spectroscopy

Documentation

Changed:
<
<
  • Updated the PACS Data Reduction Guide to follow the new spectroscopy pipeline scripts (chp3), and added a chapter on MadMap (this only got in a bit later in 6Track, however). Minor updates to the other chapters to reflect other changes in the system.
