[PEM04-P05] Continued Operation of Nobeyama Radioheliograph by the International Consortium (ICCON)
The National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) has successfully operated NoRH during these two decades. From April 2015, the Solar-Terrestrial Environment Laboratory (now the Institute for Space-Earth Environmental Research), Nagoya University started the operation of NoRH as a representative of the International Consortium for the Continued Operation of Nobeyama Raidoheliograph (ICCON; http://hinode.stelab.nagoya-u.ac.jp/ICCON/ ). The current ICCON representatives are N. Gopalswamy (NASA), Y. Yan (NAOC), K. S. Cho (KASI), M. Ishii (NICT), K. Shibasaki (Nagoya University and Solar Physics Laboratory) and S. Masuda (Nagoya University).
In addition to the core members of this consortium, about 30 researchers collaborate the operation of NoRH. Among them, one chief observer is assigned to check the health of the instrument/computers and to verify the data quality every day. These daily tasks can be done via internet from a remote site. This system also works very well for the first one year.
NoRH data are automatically transferred from the observational site (Nobeyama) to Solar Data Analysis System (SDAS; http://hinode.nao.ac.jp/SDAS/index_e.shtml) of NAOJ at Mitaka, and then all of them are automatically mirrored to Hinode Science Center at Nagoya (http://hinode.stelab.nagoya-u.ac.jp/index.shtml.en). Any researcher registered in either system can access all of the NoRH data. The software for the data analysis is supplied as a part of the solarsoft (IDL-based software system mainly maintained by Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory) and distributed via internet.
