[65.07] Computing and Data Handling Concept for SNAP/JDEM Mission

G.E. Kushner, W.C. Carithers (Lawrence Berkeley National Lab), SNAP Collaboration

The Supernova/Acceleration Probe (SNAP) concept for the Joint Dark Energy Mission (JDEM) includes a wide-angle imager and spectrograph estimated to generate approximately 250 Gigabytes of raw data per day. The SNAP Science Operations pipeline must process this data in a timely manner in order to identify supernova candidates sufficiently early in the light curve to command the spacecraft to take a spectroscopic observation at peak brightness. In addition, the science data pipeline will produce catalogues and archival images for astronomical objects to 30th (AB) magnitude in nine colors for the 15 square degree deep survey. All data will be made available public through an archive at an established Science Support Center. This poster will present a conceptual model for SNAP computing and data handling to accomplish these requirements.
