Abstract: The Data ARchive and Transmission System (DARTS) is developed and maintained by the PLAIN center (The Center for PLAnning and INformation Systems) at ISAS in cooperation with various ISAS satellite teams. We have started to release archival data from ASCA, an X-ray astronomy satellite, Yohkoh, a solar physics satellite, and Geotail, a magnetospheric satellite. We are now planning to release data from Ginga, a previous X-ray satellite, and Akebono, a magnetospheric satellite. In near future, we will release data of the forthcoming X-ray astronomy satellite, Astro-E. The data in the DARTS can be accessed via the Internet. The system provides: (1) storage of calibrated scientific database obtained by ISAS satellites; (2) facilities to search and transfer data via the Internet; (3) on-line data analysis capability under the high performance ISAS computer facility; and (4) supporting analysis tools.
