The HEASARC Charter

Since the merger of the HEASARC and the LAMBDA archives, the HEASARC's charter has been to:
  • Maintain and disseminate data from previous and current high energy astrophysics and cosmic microwave background missions;
  • Provide software and data analysis support for these datasets;
  • Maintain and provide the necessary scientific and technical expertise for the processing and interpretation of the data holdings;
  • Develop and maintain multi-mission analysis and support tools;
  • Provide catalogs of observations and ancillary information for the data holdings;
  • Coordinate data, software and media standards with other astrophysics sites; and
  • Support outreach in high-energy and cosmic microwave background astrophysics.

The HEASARC welcomes your participation in a brief survey to capture how users access and utilize HEASARC data, software, and services. The outcome(s) of this survey will be used to guide, prioritize, and plan our activities and development in the coming years. It contains 18 questions, generally takes just a few minutes to complete, and your answers will remain totally anonymous. We thank you in advance for your valuable feedback.
