Abstract: The Data Transport System (DTS) provides automated, reliable, high-throughput data transfer between the telescopes, archives and pipeline processing systems used by the NOAO centers in the northern and southern hemispheres. DTS uses an XML-RPC architecture to eliminate the need for persistent connections between the sites, allowing each site to provide or consume services within the network only as needed. The RPC architecture also permits remote control and monitoring of each system, and for client applications to be language-independent (e.g. a web interface to display transfer status or a task to queue data which is more tightly coupled with the acquisition system being used).
