Data Processing

The primary data reduction package for the EVLA is the CASA (Common Astronomy Software Applications) package, which will also be used for ALMA. See http://casa.nrao.edu for more information on the latest release.

NRAO will continue to support AIPS (Astronomical Image Processing System) for the foreseeable future, at least until VLBI functionality has been incorporated into CASA. See http://www.aips.nrao.edu for more details.

It will be possible to reduce data obtained through the Open Shared Risk Observing program using either CASA or AIPS.
