Since the launch of the Compton GRO, the SDAC has maintained an on-line interactive computer facility that provides the international solar physics community with quick-look access to the BATSE 4-channel LAD rates with 1-second time resolution, as well as scientific support in the interpretation of these data. The facility displays flare catalog entries, plots quick-look displays of orbital data and flare time profiles, dumps the data in ASCII or binary format files for remote retrieval, and lists BATSE solar viewing time intervals. The database is usually current to within three days of the observations.
