Abstract: In this paper, we present our conceptual analysis and first results on the European FP7 project High Energy Solar Physics in Europe (HESPE). This project aims at releasing large amounts of science-ready data products from solar X-ray observations done by the NASA's Reuven Ramathy High-Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI). RHESSI is an indirect imager, thus images must be reconstructed from photon counts before they can be analyzed. Our project aims at replacing the manual image reconstruction by an automatic processing framework. At its core, an optimization algorithm selects optimal time and energy intervals for image reconstruction. The HESPE framework will not only be applicable to RHESSI, but will prepare the grounds for the data management of the next X-ray instrument STIX, which will fly on Solar Orbiter.
