HEASoft 6.20 released (18th January 2017).
The Swift analysis software is part of HEASoft (the High Energy
Astrophysics Software), which encompasses FTools and XANADU (i.e.,
XSPEC, XRONOS and XIMAGE for spectral, timing and image analysis
respectively). A list of the Swift tools is available. They can also be listed using the FTools command
Mode (BASIC, INST, or FULL) INST Name of Mission SWIFT Name of Instrument BAT ** caldbinfo 1.0.2 ... Local CALDB appears to be set-up & accessible ** caldbinfo 1.0.2 completed successfully
For "Name of instrument", input either BAT, XRT or UVOTA (the "a" is required).
The following GTI expressions are now the defaults for
xrtpipeline. Note that the Elevation angle filtering is now less
stringent, and the substrate voltage has been increased from 0V to 6V (the
change was made in August 2007).
The gain and bad pixel files have also been updated and
is the default; this will therefore give correct positions for sources since
the velocity aiding was switched off on 2005-01-31.
