Telemetry Pipeline

The telemetry pipeline acquired events that were recognized by the ACIS flight software and telemetered through the RCTU and CTUE. The telemetry data analyzed at PSU was captured by the ACIS EGSE computer and saved to disk by the AQLC computer as binary files, each containing one AXAF major telemetry frame. The ATICA (ACIS Telemetry Interpreter for Calibration Analysis) program extracted x-ray events from this telemetry stream, saving them as FITS event list tables.
