Abstract: The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS) will often produce multiple exposures of a given target, usually for the purposes of measuring and removing thermal background emission and for rejecting cosmic rays. The processing of these associated images presents new challenges to the HST data processing pipelines, which heretofore operated only on single images. In this paper we describe the concept of associated observations and how they will be processed collectively by the NICMOS calibration pipeline.
