Announcement of Opportunity for the Gaia Data Processing Archive Access Co-Ordination Unit

Announcement of Opportunity for the Gaia Data Processing Archive Access Co-Ordination Unit

19 November 2012

The European Space Agency (ESA) solicits through the present Announcement of Opportunity (AO) proposals for the provision of the Archive Access Co-Ordination Unit (CU9) in the Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC). The deadline for proposal submission is 10 January 2013.

Note: The deadline for submissions has passed

The Gaia mission, a global astrometric survey mission, is an element of ESA's Scientific Programme, which is approaching the operational phase of the mission with launch scheduled for October 2013. Proposals are solicited from ESA Member States, for the Gaia DPAC Archive Access Co-Ordination Unit, which will provide for scientists access to all data products produced by the Gaia science ground segment.

The data processing ground segment is a fundamental element of the mission with the remaining essential Co-Ordination Unit required to provide access to the DPAC results. The Archive Access Co-Ordination Unit will be, similarly to the rest of DPAC, a collaboration between the ESA Gaia Science Operations Centre and a substantial broad scientific community funded by national funding agencies.

AO information package

The AO information package is available as a zip file, linked from the right-hand menu, and includes the following 3 documents:

  • Revised Gaia Science Management Plan (ESA_SPC-2006-45.pdf)
  • Gaia Intermediate Data Release Scenario (GAIA-CG-PL-ESA-TJP-011-01.pdf)
  • AO for the Gaia Data Processing Archive Access Co-Ordination Unit (GAIA-CG-PL-ESA-TJP-013-01.pdf)

Proposal submission

Proposals should be submitted electronically by email to:
Timo.Prusti@rssd.esa.int and no later than 10 January 2013.

In addition a copy of the complete proposal must be sent to each of the funding agencies which will later be requested to provide financial support to the CU9 activities.

Note: The deadline for submissions has passed
