The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA)

The CTA project is an initiative to build the next generation ground-based very high energy gamma-ray instrument. It will serve as an open observatory to a wide astrophysics community and will provide a deep insight into the non-thermal high-energy universe.

CTA Data Distiller

The work necessary to the provision of data via the Virtual Observatory (VO), a requirement for CTA, is coordinated by the Observatoire de Paris.

In this context, we developed a prototype that allows a user to access CTA data using VO tools, standards and protocols, and provides the ability to analyze the data online.
