New AGILE Public Data Now Available up to December 31, 2017

We are pleased to announce the publication of new AGILE gamma-ray data.
The public AGILE archive now contains all data from December 1, 2007 to December 31, 2017, i.e. from the start of Cycle-1 up to the start of the on-going Cycle-11. AGILE-GRID event files (EVT) and spacecraft auxiliary (LOG) files are available from the SSDC Multimission Archive (MMIA) webpage for the AGILE Mission.

We recall that, starting from October 2015 the standard one-year proprietary period was eliminated, and all AGILE-GRID data are now published as soon as they are processed and validated. The new AGILE Cycle-10 and Cycle-11 data which become public today were obtained with AGILE observing a large portion of the sky in spinning mode, and they have been processed with the latest available software and calibrations.

For an easy on-line AGILE data analysis, the interested user may also query the entire public AGILE level 3 (LV3) archive through the AGILE-LV3 data analysis tool. By simply entering in the AGILE-LV3 web form the source name or coordinates of the object of interest and clicking on one of the ‘Interactive Analysis’ buttons on the query-result table, the user can execute the official AGILE Maximum Likelihood (ML) analysis in each available time bin of the chosen duration (default is 28 days).
By selecting more than one time bin, with a click of the mouse it is also possible to generate in few minutes the complete gamma-ray light curve above 100 MeV over the selected period with default analysis parameters.

The AGILE-LV3 tool is meant to be easily comprehensible, even without many instructions and it does not require any install-on-premises software or calibrations. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.
