|ACIS Users Guide, Rev. A|
The AXAF-I CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS) Science Instrument Software (SIS) is being developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Center for Space Research (MIT-CSR) as part of the ACIS Digital Processor Assembly (DPA). The DPA resides on- board the Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility - Imaging (AXAF-I). The DPA Science Instrument Software is responsible for acquiring and processing image data from the ACIS CCD Imaging Spectrometer and transferring the processed data to the AXAF-I Command and Telemetry Unit (CTU), which is then responsible for sending the information to the ground.
The ACIS Science Instrument Software User's Guide describes the operation of the key functions of the instrument software.
This document applies to the detailed design of the ACIS DPA Science Instrument Software. It does not provide information for the Ground Support Software (GSS), which is maintained separately as part of the Electronic Ground Support Equipment (EGSE).
This document supplies information applicable to SDM05 from the original contract, and to DM29 from MM8075.1.
By mutual agreement, MSFC Software Management and Development Requirements Manual MM8075.1, which supersedes MA-001-006-2H, forms the basis for this document.
