Berkeley Caltech Pulsar Machine FITS File Specification
The FITS format structure is presented for the Berkeley Caltech Pulsar
Machine (BCPM) scan data files. The scan data FITS files are permanently
archived after each observation, together with the scan data files from
other devices selected for the scan.
The scan data FITS files contain a complete description of
the BCPM setup for the observation. Measurement data is written via
independent software running locally on the BCPM workstations in
separate data files; the format of the measurement data files does
not conform to the FITS specification.
