A community service centre has been set up to bring all data on board India’s first dedicated solar space mission to a single web-based interface. The service centre is called Aditya-L1 Support Cell.
It is a joint effort of Indian Space Research Organisation and Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences. It will allow every interested individual to perform scientific analysis of the data.
It is slated to develop specific tools to assist guest observers and researchers to prepare observing proposals for Aditya-L1 observations. It will also assist ISRO with the design and development of analysis software for handling scientific data.
The centre will also provide co-aligned data from other observatories around the world that can complement the data obtained from Aditya-L1. This centre will expand reach of Aditya-L1 not only within India, but also increase the visibility of the mission at the international level.
