XTESLEW - RXTE Archived Public Slew Data
This database table is a catalog of all the RXTE slew observations and is
based on information culled from the RXTE Data Archive's latest top-level FMI
(FITS Master Index) file that is created when data products are made publicly
available each week. ObsIDs listed in this table are available for download
See the parameter 'data_loc' for the relative location of specific ObsIDs.
The XTESLEW database table is updated automatically, usually on a weekly basis
whenever the RXTE GOF updates the top-level FMI for the public data archive
and notifies the HEASARC.
The XTESLEW table has the following data products set defined:
Complete Data Directory of a Single XTE Observation (FULL OBSID)
This set contains the entire ObsID directory for each selected
observation. The ObsID directory contains all the data
products for each observation.
The unique identifer of the observation.
The RXTE cycle (AO phase) number to which the observation belongs.
IOC observations have cycle = 0.
Proposal number of the observation.
Target number of the observation in the proposal.
The type of event associated with the observation where:
A = slew before observation (available to the public)
S = raster scan observation
Z = slew after observation (available to the public)
0-9 = parts of an observation that has been broken into smaller segments
B-R = (potentially) realtime changes in configurations
The time the observation started.
The time the observation stopped.
The name of the principle investigator for the RXTE Observation Request.
The designation of the target of the observation.
The Right Ascension of the target.
The Declination of the target.
The Galactic Longitude of the target.
The Galactic Latitude of the target.
Pointer to the directory containing the data products. If the data
is stored on-line, the path to the directory will be the concatenation of
ftp://legacy.gsfc.nasa.gov/xte/data/archive/ and the contents of the 'data_loc'
