New AGILE public data and new scientific software package now available

We are pleased to announce the publication of new AGILE gamma-ray data up to May 31, 2019 and a new AGILE scientific software package.

We recall that since October 2015 all AGILE-GRID data are published as soon as they are processed and validated. AGILE satellite operations and all AGILE payload functions are nominal. The new public AGILE archive now contains all data from December 1, 2007 up to May 31, 2019, i.e. from the start of Cycle-1 up to the on-going Cycle-12. AGILE-GRID event files (EVT) and spacecraft auxiliary (LOG) files are available from the SSDC Multimission Archive (MMIA) webpage for the AGILE Mission.

To produce your own maps and run likelihood tasks please download and install the new public AGILE software available here, and follow the User Manual included. The new AGILE public scientific software package AGILE_SW_6.0, adapted from the AGILE Science Tools (TAGNAME = BUILD25), was published on Apr 18, 2019. It includes new scientific software and calibrations, an updated model for the Galactic diffuse gamma-ray emission, a refined procedure for point-like source detection, and the search for extended gamma-ray sources.

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. The AGILE-LV3 tool is meant to be easily comprehensible, and it does not require any install-on-premises software or calibrations. The underlying AGILE software and calibrations will be updated also in the AGILE-LV3 tool in the next few months.
