Instrument Capabilities Service

The Instrument Capabilities Service (ICS) describes the types of observations that can be made by more than 250 instruments; it also holds information about the characteristics of the associated observatories.

Note that the ICS describes all instruments that could be included in HELIO; not all will necessarily be available through the project.

To use the ICS, select the time range of interest and one or more parameters that help define the type of observations that you are interested in and then press "Search". The results can be viewed as a Web page or downloaded as a VOTable or text file.

The items that are checked act as constraints: if non are checked then all instruments operating in the defined time interval are selected; as items are checked the number that satisfy the constraints is modified. Items within a block are ORed together; the blocks are then ANDed together.

A Free-SQL window is provided to allow the user to experiment with SQL queries.
