Abstract: We describe principal components of the new spectroscopic data pipeline for the multi-object MMT/Magellan Infrared Spectrograph (MMIRS). The pipeline is implemented in IDL and C++. The performance of the data processing algorithms are sufficient to reduce a single dataset in 2–3 min on a modern PC workstation, so that one can use the pipeline as a quick-look tool during the observations. We provide an example of the spectral data processed by our pipeline and demonstrate that the sky subtraction quality get close to the limits set by the Poisson photon statistics.
