Opening a Window of Discovery on the Dynamic Universe

Data Management Pipelines

January 2011
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.

Financial support for LSST 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 LSST 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 LSST camera 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.
