AbstractCHARIS is a near-infrared (JHK) coronagraphic integral field spectrograph (IFS) housed on the Subaru Telescope. In conjunction with the extreme adaptive optics system, SCExAO, it provides high-contrast spectral imaging of substellar companions and circumstellar disks. However, data extraction, calibration, and processing are time consuming processes with a steep learning curve, creating a bottleneck and slowing the production of scientific results. The new Automated Data Extraction, Processing, and Tracking System (ADEPTS) will automatically process all data taken by CHARIS, building calibration files and extracting science-grade data cubes, as well as performing post-processing on the results using default parameters. ADEPTS also serves as a backend for CHARIS in terms of file organization, logging all raw and produced files in a searchable SQLite database and providing a mechanism for user flagging of bad files. By using automation to remove wait times and reducing elapsed computation time via parallelization on its home 72-CPU processor, ADEPTS will be able to produce science-grade data products within a day of observations. We present an update on the current status of ADEPTS, as well as new features and design modifications. © COPYRIGHT SPIE. Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
