abstract

Gaia is Europe's future astrometry satellite which is currently under development. The data collected by Gaia will be treated and analyzed by the "Data Processing and Analysis Consortium" (DPAC). DPAC consists of over 400 scientists in more than 22 countries, which are currently developing the required data reduction, analysis and handling algorithms and routines. DPAC is organized in Coordination Units (CU's) and Data Processing Centres (DPCs). Each of these entities is individually responsible for the development of software for the processing of the different data. In 2008, the DPAC Project Office (PO) has been set-up with the task to manage the day-to-day activities of the consortium including implementation, development and operations. This paper describes the tasks DPAC faces and the role of the DPAC PO in the Gaia framework and how it supports the DPAC entities in their effort to fulfill the Gaia promise.
