The calibration pipeline processes data from all instruments and observing modes.  It produces both fully calibrated individual exposures and high level data products (mosaics, extracted spectra, etc.).

The calibration pipeline is organized in stages by type of observations.  The algorithms and overall structure of the pipeline are decided by an inclusive working group.

The calibration pipeline is coded in Python.  The details of how to install the pipelinerun the pipeline including tutorials, and the detailed code documentation  including the data structures used are provided.
