Overview

The High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center (HEASARC) Office provides leadership in the Astrophysics Science Division's mission operations and data analysis activities. HEASARC facilitates widespread use of astrophysics data through guest observer programs, data analysis software, instrument calibration, multimission standards, and archive access.

The Office is responsible for the High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Center, Legacy Archive for Microwave Background Data Analysis (LAMBDA), and dedicated science support facilities for individual missions. Data from current and older missions are also included, with future mission data added as appropriate. The Office is also responsible for administering the guest observer programs for ongoing astrophysics missions.
