INTEGRAL Science Data Centre


The INTErnational Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory


INTEGRAL is the INTernational Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory of the European Space Agency. It observes the Universe in the X-ray and soft gamma-ray band. Since its launch, on October 17, 2002, the ISDC receives the spacecraft telemetry within seconds and provides alerts, processed data and analysis software to the worldwide scientific community.
