AstroMat WorkPlan

The development of the Astromaterials Data System will be ongoing over 5 years with different project components progressing in parallel in three development phases to successively develop and implement the various system components and incorporate data for all collections. For each development phase, we have identified major milestones for the different project components. The timing of deliverables accounts for the interdependence of system components.
