Available Pipelines

There are many pre-defined pipeline modules for processing data from different instrument observing modes through each of the 3 stages of calibration. For all of the details see Pipeline Stages.

Pipeline/Step Suffix Definitions

However the output file name is determined (see above), the various stage 1, 2, and 3 pipeline modules will use that file name, along with a set of predetermined suffixes, to compose output file names. The output file name suffix will always replace any known suffix of the input file name. Each pipeline module uses the appropriate suffix for the product(s) it is creating. The list of suffixes is shown in the following table. Replacement occurs only if the suffix is one known to the calibration code. Otherwise, the new suffix will simply be appended to the basename of the file.
