Title SolarB Global DataGrid
Abstract This paper describes how telemetry and science data from the Solar-B satellite will be imported into the UK AstroGrid infrastructure for analysis. Data will be received from the satellite by ISAS in Japan, and will then be transferred by MSSL to the UK where it is cached in CCLRC's Atlas tapestore, utilizing existing high speed network links between RAL and Japan. The control of the data flow can be done from MSSL using their existing network infrastructure and without the need for any extra local data storage. From the cache in the UK, data can then be redistributed into AstroGrid's MySpace for analysis, using the metadata held at MSSL. The innovation in this work lies in tying together Grid technologies from different Grids with existing storage and networking technologies to provide an end-to-end solution for UK participants in an international scientific collaboration. Solar-B is due for launch late 2006, but meanwhile the system is being tested with data from another solar observatory.
