Abstract: The Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS) will be installed in the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in 2004. As with other HST instruments, COS data will be routinely calibrated at the Space Telescope Science Institute. This paper describes plans for developing the calibration program CALCOS. Previous HST calibration pipeline routines were written in Fortran, SPP, or C, using IRAF image I/O and CFITSIO for tables. CALCOS will be written in Python with C extension modules, and it will use PyFITS for image and table I/O.
