Processing SMA Data

Converting SMA data to CASA MS format
This option converts data already calibrated in MIR to CASA MS format. The data are saved as UVFITS in MIR, then the provided script used to import it correctly into CASA.
BE AWARE: This routine converts raw, uncalibrated SMA only. It is untested with newer versions of CASA and should not be considered reliable. A new routine for converting raw SMA data is under development.
Two python scripts are used for the conversion - sma2casa.py and smaImportfix.py. This section describes the most common use case, but a more detailed description, including a full list of options, can be found at sma2casa Details.
