Abstract: The requirements for processing Chandra telemetry are very involved and complex. To maximize efficiency, the infrastructure for processing telemetry has been automated such that all stages of processing will be initiated without operator intervention once a telemetry file is sent to the processing input directory. To maximize flexibility, the processing infrastructure is configured via an ASCII registry. This paper discusses the major components of the Automatic Processing infrastructure including our use of the STScI OPUS system. It describes how the registry is used to control and coordinate the automatic processing.
