Ginga

The Leicester Ginga Data Archive

Ginga was a joint Japanese/UK mission which was in orbit from 1987 to 1991. The main instrument was a proportional counter with 4000 cm² effective area, sensitive to X-rays between 1.5 and 37 keV. This was a non-imaging detector, producing only spectra and light curves - in many ways the Ginga mission had similar capabilities to the current RXTE mission. Ginga made approximately 1000 observations, covering all classes of cosmic X-ray sources then known.

Almost all Ginga target and background observations have been uniformly processed at Leicester to make a complete, quality-controlled Ginga archive with a rich set of associated data products. The total size of the archive is 7.3 Gb. This archive has been made available here, and is also available from the HEASARC.
