The CSIRO ASKAP Science Data Archive (CASDA) is making data from Australia’s SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) telescope available to the astronomical community.

Raw data from the ASKAP observatory is processed by software custom-built by CSIRO (ASKAPsoft) into science ready images, cubes and catalogues. These data products are then made accessible by CASDA via a web UI (CSIRO Data Access Portal) and Virtual Observatory services.

CASDA is a collaboration between CSIRO and the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre.
