Abstract: An Astrometry Data Processing Pipeline has been developed and deployed at th e Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI). This pipeline is responsible for producing Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Astrometry Data Sets used to analyze astrometry observations and the operation of the HST Fine Guidance Sensors (FGS). Prior to the STScI Astrometry Data Processing Pipeline becoming operational, HST Astrometry Data Sets were produced by the Astrometry and Engineering Data Processing (AEDP) System at Goddard Spaceflight Center (GSFC). This paper describes the processing performed by the STScI Astrometry Pipeline and how the pipeline was designed and developed to reuse existing software components from the STScI OPUS system. OPUS is an STScI developed automated data pipeline system providing a distributed processing environment used to control and monitor applications executing in a sequential order. OPUS is described in detail in other htmladdnormallinkfoot{papers} {}.
