6.3 Description of the OM fast mode data processing chain omfchain

As we did for image data, we describe now the functionality of the fast mode data processing. For a detailed description of the tasks and the parameters controlling them we refer the User to the SAS on-line documentation and processing threads.

The example input dataset given in Table 10 contains also fast mode data files. To process them with SAS, the task omfchain has to be used. As for image data, the input data do not change through the fast mode chain.

The process is similar to the one for image data. It can be followed in figure 45. For each fast mode window of the different exposures in the observation (ODF) there will be
