XTEPUBLIC: RXTE Archived Public Data


Overview

The XTEPUBLIC table is based on information culled from the RXTE Data Archive's latest top-level FMI (FITS Master Index) file that is created when data products are made publicly available each week. ObsIDs listed in this table are available for download from ftp://legacy.gsfc.nasa.gov/xte/data/archive/. See the parameter data_loc for the exact location of specific ObsIDs. No slew ObsIDs are listed in this table. If you are interested in slew data, please refer to the XTESLEW table.
