HEASARC User's Group


The HEASARC User's Group, HUG, has as its prime directive to "evaluate and monitor the performance of the HEASARC."

Other terms of reference and organization are as follows:

  • Solicit input on the operation of the HEASARC from the astronomical community.
  • Recommend guidelines for community access to the HEASARC.
  • Provide help and information to the HEASARC on a wide range of disciplines relevant to its activities.
  • Encourage interaction and coordination with other mission facilities and data archives, both within and outside NASA.
  • Review an annual report on the HEASARC activities and progress.

The HUG meets about once every year or so. It provides feedback to the HEASARC director, as well as to NASA Headquarters.
