Abstract: The Spitzer Science Center (SSC) provides a set of science user tools to support planning and archive access via the Internet. We will present the software architecture and design principles that underlie the Uplink/Archive subsystem of the SSC. Included in the discussion will be a review of the original Uplink architecture as presented in P1-59 ADASS 1999 and the evolutionary changes for the current deployment. The Archive subsystem is based on the same set of core components used in the Uplink subsystem but is based on Web services technology to allow open access to the Archive. Web services technology provides a basis for searching the archive and retrieving data products.
