On-the-fly XMM-Newton Spacecraft Data Reduction on the Grid

Received07 Dec 2006
Accepted07 Dec 2006


We present the results of the first prototype of a XMM-Newton pipeline processing task, parallelized at a CCD level, which can be run in a Grid system. By using the Grid Way application and the XMM-Newton Science Archive system, the processing of the XMM-Newton data is distributed across the Virtual Organization (VO) constituted by three different research centres: ESAC (European Space Astronomy Centre), ESTEC (the European Space research and TEchnology Centre) and UCM (Complutense University of Madrid). The proposed application workflow adjusts well to the Grid environment, making use of the massive parallel resources in a flexible and adaptive fashion.
