IDOC (Integrated Data and Operation Center) is located and operated at IAS, Orsay under contract with CNRS, CNES, and Univ. Paris-Sud.
IDOC takes part in all the operational phases of space missions. The instruments operated from the center require that the telecommands they receive be prepared and validated. The feedback of this control, which is received through the telemetry treatment chains, depends on the specific transfer periods of each probe, but, due to their critical nature for the instrument, they must receive their validation fast.
IDOC/GINCO is a center for expertise for several space, balloon and ground mission. It has an important role in data processing, distribution and interpretation, for several astronomy missions at long wavelength. In this matter, GINCO :
develops and maintains high level analysis pipelines
develops and maintains data archives & access
develops, maintains and distribute high level software for data analysis
offers scientific expertise for mission using long wavelength detectors
plays an important role in education and outreach to the general public
