Abstract:

The ROSAT  Results Archive (RRA) is currently being produced by the five participating ROSAT  institutions: Max-Planck-Institut für Extraterrestrische Physik (MPE), Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO), Leicester University (LU), Astrophysikalisches Institut Potsdam (AIP).

It is a public archive that contains the source detections in all the released ROSAT  High Resolution Imager (HRI) and Position Sensitive Proportional Counter (PSPC) pointed observations: about 8000 so far, and still increasing. The primary source parameters from the Standard Analysis Software System (SASS) have been quality checked, both by automatic algorithms and by visual inspection of each field. The RRA  is based on, and is part of, the ROSAT  Data Archive (RDA). Whereas the current ROSAT  archives contain most of the results from SASS processing of the pointed observations, the RRA  adds the detected source parameters which were previously available only to the Principal Investigator (PI) and the newly generated quality flags.
