The Spacecraft CDR will be held at LMMS on August 13th and 14th. The final set of meetings will include the Mission CDR at SwRI on August 19th and 20th followed by the Science Team meeting at SwRI on August 21st.
At the science team meeting each instrument lead will be asked to provide a half-hour presentation on the data products to be provided by his instrument. The detailed specification of level-0 data packets and level-1 browse products will then be discussed and agreed upon. Finally, plans will be made for detailed data processing and analysis, including image inversion and the incorporation of various models. Our goal is to provide the opportunity for scientists not associated with IMAGE to access the full data base and analyze data using the complete set of analysis capabilities we will have developed through web access without the need for specific types of computer systems or any special software. This goal is a challenging one, but is one we must meet in order to live up to the plan we proposed. To have an open data set that requires special systems and/or interactions with investigators to analyze is not really an open data set. We have to do much better than anything that is currently available in our field, including ISTP.
