Data Management Pipelines

The pipelines process the images to produce the catalogs, which are then made accessible to the community via open interfaces in a Virtual Observatory model. Since new data is being collected nightly throughout the LSST's 10-year survey period, and scientific algorithms will evolve during this time frame, significant re-processing will occur. This must be taken into account in sizing the LSST technology resources and making the LSST middleware easily extendable.
LSST Project Office

Financial support for Rubin Observatory comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded Rubin Observatory Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA).  The DOE-funded effort to build the Rubin Observatory LSST Camera (LSSTCam) is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future.
NSF and DOE will continue to support Rubin Observatory in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
