The Radio Telescope Data Center (RTDC) reduces, archives, and makes available on its web site data from the Submillimeter Array (SMA), the CfA Millimeter-wave Telescope, the Antarctic Submillimeter Telescope and Remote Observatory (AST/RO), and soon other instruments affiliated with the Radio and Geoastronomy Division of the CfA. We also provide computer hardware, software tools, and user support for the analysis of radio interferometric data from the SMA, Jansky Very Large Array (JVLA), Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), and soon the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA).

The SMA data currently available include almost all raw correlator data since April 2002 and calibrated data since April 2008. A small (and growing) sample of imaged data is available, as well. SMA data can be searched using an online form. Our archive of data from the CfA Millimeter-wave telescope includes essentially all of the CO(1-0) spectra that constitute the whole-Galaxy survey presented in Dame, Hartmann, & Thaddeus (2001, ApJ, 547, 792). We provide v-l-b FITS cubes for each of the surveys listed in Table 1 of that paper, plus larger composite cubes and integrated maps.

We provide and maintain 10 Linux workstations for use by R&G scientists and visitors, and user support for the software packages AIPS, MIR, Mirad, and CASA.
