Abstract: The AXAF Science Center (ASC) is using an ``open architecture'' approach to develop the data analysis system. The Dynamic Data File (DDF) abstraction is being developed to provide sophisticated, format-independent filtering capabilities and support for multiple file formats. The DDF interface library will use the Open-IRAF data structure libraries to provide environment independent access to the DDF data structures from any C or \fortran host-level application.
