The Cluster and Double Star Science Archive

version 1.4.7, released 2 October 2017    


To access the archive through its Java graphical user interface, please use the above link. This interface includes the following data services:

Direct data download up to 1 GB or Schedule data download up to 40 GB 

Visualize key datasets (on-demand & pregenerated plots)

Visualize particle distributions (on-demand only)

Browse inventory information

Store data profiles 

Automatic login



Since August 1, 2017, command line users must renew their CSACOOKIE, due to the installation of a new server on July 31. Use the above link to learn how to access the Cluster science archive data products via several ways including: wget, MATLAB, IDL and data streaming.


Check the FAQ section if any problem occurs, or contact us.

Users are currently suffering from a much decreased transfer rate from CSA - we are looking into this.
