Pipeline processing of XMM science data

The SSC is responsible for the task of processing all XMM observations to produce data products for all science instruments (e.g., source lists, images, spectral and time series data). These products, together with the ODF s, will be distributed by the SOC to observers, and after SOC validation, they will also be incorporated into the XMM data archive maintained by the SOC.
