Jul 31, 2017AGILE Cycle-10 Public Data Now Available and New On-line AGILE-LV3 Analysis Tool

AGILE Cycle-10 data up to the June 30, 2017 are now publicly available, according to the current AGILE scientific data policy. Starting from October 2015 all AGILE-GRID data are published as soon as they are processed and validated.

The new public AGILE archives now contain all data from the start of Cycle-1 on December 1, 2007 Observation Block (OB) 4900, up to the first half of Cycle-10, OB 26500. AGILE Level 2 archive (STD1) of event lists and ancillary files is available from the Multimission Archive (MMIA) webpage for the AGILE Mission..

We are pleased to announce also the publication of the AGILE-LV3 data analysis tool, which provides an easy web interface for interactive on-line analysis on AGILE-GRID data, based on the official AGILE scientific software release. It does not require any install-on-premises software or calibrations.

The user may query the entire new public AGILE Level 3 archive (STD1Kal) of counts, exposure and diffuse gamma-ray maps by simply entering in the AGILE-LV3 web form the source name or coordinates of the object of interest. From the query-result table, by clicking on one of the 'Interactive Analysis' buttons the user can execute the AGILE Maximum Likelihood (ML) analysis at the source coordinates. By selecting more than one time bin, with a click of the mouse it is also possible to generate in few minutes the complete gamma-ray light curve above 100 MeV over the selected period with default analysis parameters (default is 28-day timebins).

Feb 27, 2017All AGILE Data up to the end of Cycle-9 are now publicly available

In 2015 the AGILE Mission Board suggested a change in the AGILE gamma-ray scientific data policy.
The standard one-year proprietary period requirement was eliminated, and starting from October 2015 all AGILE-GRID data are published as soon as they are processed and validated.

The new public AGILE archive now contains all data from the start of Cycle-1 on December 1, 2007 Observation Block (OB) 4900, up to the end of Cycle-9 on November 30, 2016, OB 25100.
Data are available from the ASDC Multimission Archive (MMIA) webpage for the AGILE Mission..

The query to the archive give access to all AGILE public data through an interactive webpage including the ASDC "Interactive Analysis" tool. The tool allows web users to preview the AGILE data fields, and to perform a preliminary analysis around a chosen sky position.
