Herschel Ancillary Data Product Page


This page compiles the current plans for Ancillary Data Products to be delivered as part of the Herschel Explanatory Legacy Library (HELL). Ancillary Products are data (products, tables, plots. etc) generated in the course of the Herschel (pre-launched and in-orbit) mission that are not necessarily linked to an obsid, but that shall be preserved for legacy.

Ancillary Data Products considered by each instrument

The following tables summarises information I gathered either in emails (esp. for PACS) or presentations (from the handover meetings of HIFI and SPIRE). When applicable I also provide links to (mostly twiki) pages illustrating the products meant to be preserved. It does not guarantee, however, that all contemplated items will eventually be kept as Ancillary Data Products.

Ancillary Data Products considerd for the Observatory

This is the list of ADPs contemplated for the Observatory - these deliverables will be curated by Mark Kidger. Some of these items cover requests listed n the instrument table above.

Ancillary Data Product Comment/Description
Calibration deliveries All calibration deliveries from ICCs (and the HSC, for pointing), Organised by OD initially, then by observing cycle (one sub-directory per instrument/delivery).
Mission configurations All CUS deliveries from ICCs and the resulting MCs built from them. One sub-directory per instrument with the CUS used to build the new MC for each instrument.
HPSDBs All HPSDB deliveries, including failed deliveries. These incorporate the MiB for each instrument.
HSpot files HSpot .prop files for each MC that controlled the configuration of parameters in the CUS in HSpot.
Manual commanding (MOIS) files What was provided, as is, by LOR (Excel files). HIFI directory is empty. SPIRE has deliveries from Nov 2009 & Sep 2011. PACS has deliveries from Nov 2009 & Nov 2010.
Herschel Solar System Object catalogue Analogue of the Herschel Point Source Catalogue for Moving Targets (ESAC trainee starting to work on this with MK & MR on May 16).
