FASE : Future Astronomical Software Environment : How to include tools and systems into FASE Environment.
The OPTICON Network 3.6 (FP6) and the US NVO, coordinating with international partners and the Virtual Observatory, have already identified high-level requirements and a global architectural design for a future astronomical software environment. The new OPTICON Network 9.2 (FP7) is working on a concrete prototype and a reference implementation. A global packaging system has been defined that allows to include the new softwares and tools as well as the major legacy systems (e.g. AIPS, CASA, IRAF/PyRAF, Starlink and ESO Common Pipeline Library) into FASE environment.
