Abstract: The AXAF Science Center (ASC) is using an ``open architecture'' approach to develop its data analysis environment. The system is a loosely coupled environment consisting of several major applications: visualizer, browser, fitter/modeler, as well as the data analysis tool-box. The ASC Data Model and Interprocess Communications (IPC) provide the data interface between applications and tools. The Navigator, CLI, and Profile Editor provide the user with different control methods to access these components. The modular design provides a flexible, configurable environment in which the user can create customized applications from the standard components.
