Description This award was for an extension of a grant proposal to provide a cost effective solution to the processing and rapid delivery to the astronomical community of key science data products from ESO imaging and spectroscopic survey telescopes.

This involved the further development and operational execution of advanced processing modules, and also updates to and maintenance of pipeline software, modules and documentation for delivery to ESO as part of an in-kind software contribution. The fully calibrated world-class data products delivered by these processing pipelines are a crucial step for full science exploitation of the acquired data.
Exploitation Route Fully calibrated and optimally processed data are crucial ingredients for full science exploitation of observational data. The outputs from the CASU processing pipelines are world-class and provide the necessary inputs for a broad range of the subsequent astronomical research that is initiated by having these products available. These data products are used throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. The infrastructure and software algorithms developed to enable optimal exploitation of astronomical survey data have wide applicability across many image processing and analysis domains.
