Quick Look data become available on the ql page on a timescale of a few hours after relevant observation. The data products are the result of the standard pipeline processing of the total data accumulated up to that point, produced after each Malindi dump. These data may be only partial observation segments, but will be available on the shortest possible timescale. Quick Look data are removed from this site after one week; at this time they are moved to the Swift archive.
All the science, housekeeping and auxiliary data, together with standard analysis products, are released to the community in the form of FITS files. These products are available from the data centres in the UK, USA and Italy, on a timescale of a few hours after the observation and are the result of the standard pipeline processing. These data may only be partial observation segments. After a week, the products will be archived.
