Abstract: In 1997 the HST payload was rejuvenated with two new instruments. After an initial period during which the instrument in-flight responses were assessed and understood and the calibration software and data flow stabilised, the CADC and ST-ECF started working together on the extension of the on-the-fly (OTF) calibration pipeline to support NICMOS and STIS. In this article the design and the implementation of such pipeline are shown. The design is based on a usage of database queries, a rule system and an automatic code generation system written in PERL.
