Guest Observers will be furnished with clear and informative handbooks to enable them to analyze their data. Handbooks will be produced to cover the satellite itself, the data pipeline, the analysis software and the archive database. In order that these handbooks be ready at the same time as the software, they will be written, and continuously updated, at the same time as the software. If, to produce the satellite handbook, it is necessary to draw heavily on Japanese manuals, a translator will be employed. The data analysis manual will include not only a user's guide to the analysis programs but also a detailed description of observation modes, calibration, and detector subtleties. This will be a continuously updated document that will be augmented by a regular newsletter. All documentation will be available electronically.
