BeppoSAX : Archive
opened on January 1998. The archive is created and
maintained by the SAX Science Data Center in Rome.
A copy of the SAX archive
public data is given to HEASARC from the SAX-SDC in exchange of
other high energy astrophysics archived public data under an agreement
between NASA and ASI.
Only data from the Narrow Field Instruments (mainly from LECS and MECS) are
currently in the HEASARC public archive. The HEASARC copy provides a faster
access to the US comunity. In term of public releases,its content will lag
about six months behind the original, available at the
BeppoSAX Data Center in Rome.
HEASARC holds about the 75 % of the current public data sets available.
