PLANCK Data Receipt

The major institutional interfaces and facilities are called out in the Science Implementation Plan (SIP).
The bulk of these data receipt tasks are most appropriate for computer science and data handling specialists. The primary points of interactions with the LFI science team is in defining the steps taken by the Planck on-board computers and in what kinds of data
are needed for the quick-look, real-time, monitoring, and quality checking and any special investigations of performance. It is likely that the data volume is sufficiently large that the data will be separated into relevant streams by special software for long term trending and investigations.
