Preparation of the Gaia Data Processing: First Astrometric Results

Luri, X.; O'Mullane, W.; Lammers, U.; Lindegren, Lennart LU and Masana, E. (2010) Eighth Scientific Meeting of the Spanish Astronomical Society (Sociedad Española de Astronomía, SEA) In Highlights of Spanish Astrophysics V, Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings p.511-511
Abstract
The Gaia mission of the European Space Agency (ESA) will produce high-precision astrometry for 10^9 objects up to 20th magnitude. The volume of data generated (about 150TB of compressed raw data) and the complexity of the relationships between them make the scientific processing a challenging task. This paper presents the basic concepts of the core of the astrometric data reduction, the AGIS system, its present status and the first test results using simulated data.
