These Web-based tools are designed to assist
scientists in their proposal and general data analysis efforts. The
HEASARC provides these tools as a service to the scientific community.

Cosmic Microwave Background Analysis Tools
- X-Ray Background Tool v2.5 released (19 Feb 2013)
The X-Ray Background Tool has been enhanced with support for
extraction regions with radii up to 10 degrees.
- xTime tool updated (24 Jan 2013)
NuSTAR support has been added to xTime. Also, some unused mission
day formats have been removed.
- Viewing tool updated (15 Aug 2012)
As per recently
updated mission guidelines, the Sun angle constraint for Suzaku has
been updated to 70-115 degrees.
- Viewing tool updated (10 Aug 2012)
The Viewing tool has been updated to version 3.3. The times of
Moon angle constraints are now displayed with 1-hour resolution. For
preferred TOO observations with Swift, target-Sun R.A. differences in the
0-4 hour range are now included, as well as >8 hours, as per recently
updated mission guidelines.
- Viewing tool updated (20 Jan 2012)
The Viewing tool has been updated. Since RXTE has been
decomissioned, support for it has been removed. Swift's orbital pole
constraints and Sun angle limit have also been updated. Previous versions
used the spacecraft limit of 46°; this version uses the software
limit of 47°.
