HIPE: Herschel Interactive Processing Environment

[c]HIPE: Herschel Interactive Processing Environment[/c][/b]
Abstract: The Herschel Space Observatory is the fourth cornerstone mission in the ESA science programme and performs photometry and spectroscopy in the 55 - 672 micron range. The development of the Herschel Data Processing System started in 2002 to support the data analysis for Instrument Level Tests. The Herschel Data Processing System was used for the pre-flight characterisation of the instruments, and during various ground segment test campaigns. Following the successful launch of Herschel 14th of May 2009 the Herschel Data Processing System demonstrated its maturity when the first PACS preview observation of M51 was processed within 30 minutes of reception of the first science data after launch. Also the first HIFI observations on DR21 were successfully reduced to high quality spectra, followed by SPIRE observations on M66 and M74. A fast turn-around cycle between data retrieval and the production of science-ready products was demonstrated during the Herschel Science Demonstration Phase Initial Results Workshop held 7 months after launch, which is a clear proof that the system has reached a good level of maturity.

HIPE is primarily a tool for accessing Herschel data and running the official pipelines, allowing to modify these pipelines and rerun them on your desktop. It also has a large number of toolkits to analyse the processing results.

HIPE now has a new homepage: http://herschel.esac.esa.int/hipe
