Download the HEASOFT Software
Current version 6.25 Release Notes
All HEASOFT tasks may now be run remotely using the Hera data analysis service at the HEASARC without having to install the software locally. This provides a quick way to try out the software and is ideal for users who have limited or infrequent need to run the HEASOFT tasks. More intensive users of HEASOFT are still encouraged to install the software locally for best performance. Learn more about using Hera.

Please click SUBMIT only once, and be patient while a tar file containing your selections is assembled and retrieved.
