The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA)

www.cta-observatory.org

The CTA project is an initiative to build the next generation ground-based very high energy gamma-ray instrument. It will serve as an open observatory to a wide astrophysics community and will provide a deep insight into the non-thermal high-energy universe.

CTA VO Access

The work necessary to the provision of data via the Virtual Observatory (VO), a requirement for CTA, is coordinated by the LUTh/Observatoire de Paris. In this context, we developed a prototype that allows a user to access CTA data using VO tools, standards and protocols, and provides the ability to analyze the data online.

CTA Proposal Handling Platform

The work necessary to the management of the GO proposals, a requirement for CTA, is coordinated by the APC/CNRS-Universite Paris Diderot. We are developping a demonstrator to develop and test the main technical aspects of the Proposal Handling Platform.
