DKIST - Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope

Program Description: The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST, formerly the Advanced Technology Solar Telescope, ATST) will address questions such as: What is the nature of solar magnetism; how does that magnetism control our star; and how can we model and predict its changing outputs that affect the Earth? The facility is located at Haleakala Observatories, Hawaii. Currently in construction

Organization Description: DKIST represents a collaboration of 22 U.S. institutions, reflecting a broad segment of the solar physics community.

Data Description: Depending on final design of the instruments, there will be 5-15 petabytes of data per year. For their mission, latency and timeliness are not that important. This translates to just under 5 Gbps average over the course of a year needed to move the data from Maui to National Solar Observatory HQ in Boulder.
