Preparation of the Gaia Data Processing: First Astrometric Results

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

The Gaia mission of the European Space Agency (ESA) will produce high-precision astrometry for 10^9 objects up to 20th magnitude. The volume of data generated (about 150TB of compressed raw data) and the complexity of the relationships between them make the scientific processing a challenging task. This paper presents the basic concepts of the core of the astrometric data reduction, the AGIS system, its present status and the first test results using simulated data.
