Abstract: The aim of AITAS is to automatically archive and index data acquired from an instrument during test and validation phase. AITAS product has been built initially to fill the needs of the IRDIS-SPHERE (ESO-VLT) project to archive and organise data during the test phase. We have developed robust and secure tools to retrieve data from the acquisition workstation, build an archive and index data by keywords to provide search functionality among large amount of data. This import of data is done automatically after setting some configuration files. In addition APIs and GUI client have been developed in order to retrieve data from a generic interface and use them in test processing phase. The end user is able to select data and retrieve using any criteria listed in the metadata of the files. One main advantage of this system is that it is intrinsically generic so that it can be used in instrument project in astrophysical laboratories without any further modifications.
