ORAC-DR was developed at the Joint Astronomy Centre by Frossie Economou and Tim Jenness in collaboration with the UK Astronomy Technology Centre as part of the ORAC project. Other members of the ORAC-DR team have subsequently contributed to ORAC-DR's infrastructure.
Other members of the ORAC team provided invaluable scientific and technical input to ORAC-DR, in particular Alan Bridger (UKATC), Gillian Wright (UKATC) and Andy Adamson (JAC).
Software support for SCUBA was added by Tim Jenness. Malcolm Currie provided the software for UFTI, IRCAM, and Michelle imaging. Support for CGS4 and Michelle spectroscopy was added by Paul Hirst, Frossie Economou, Tim Jenness, Malcolm Currie, and Brad Cavanagh. The ORAC-DR GUI was added by Alasdair Allan (Starlink). IRIS-2 support was added by Brad Cavanagh in conjunction with Stuart Ryder (AAT). ISAAC and INGRID support was added by Malcolm Currie. UIST IFU support was added by Stephen Todd.
The developers are also grateful to numerous members of UKIRT and JCMT
staff for their ideas and feedback.
