The HEASARC Calibration Database
Caldb manager: Dr. M. F. Corcoran
The HEASARC's calibration database (CALDB) system stores and indexes datasets
associated with the calibration of high energy astronomical instrumentation. The
system can be accessed by users and software alike to determine which
calibration datasets are available, and which should be used for data reduction
and analysis. (Read

Who's who at the CALDB (and who was who)
NuSTAR CALDB Update (25 Nov 2013)
The NuSTAR CALibration DataBase was updated on November 25, 2013 (CALDB version 20131007). Because of the large size of some calibration files, for NuSTAR data processing and analysis we recommend downloading the NuSTAR CALDB and installing it locally, rather than accessing the NuSTAR CALDB at the HEASARC remotely.
