Data and Computing

Maintaining access to excellent data and computing infrastructure is a fundamental requirement for world class astronomy research. Investment in data and computing resources will enable Australian astronomers to fully exploit the wealth of data coming from major astronomical projects, currently underway both here and overseas.

Data and Computing – Projects & Facilities


Astronomy Data and Computing Services (ADACS) aims to maximise scientific return from data and computing infrastructure.


The Gravitational Wave Data Centre (GWDC) enables researchers in Australia to lead in the discovery of gravitational wave events.


AAL supports High Performance Computing (HPC) for astronomers in need of high speed data processing and world-class software capability.


The Optical Data Centre (ODC) is a data archive and management service developed by AAO-Macquarie.
