Abstract: The data analysis procedure for HXMT data is organized into three distinct stages for the calibration, the screening and the extraction of scientific products — i.e., energy spectra, light curves, Redistribution Matrix Files (RMF) and background files —. The purpose of analysis software, the insight-HXMT Data Analysis Software package (HXMTDAS), is to achieve the HXMT data analysis processing and extract scientific products. It provides several tasks with each task is to accomplish a step of data analysis. These tasks are written in ftools style and are fully compatible with the HEASoft software. While the software architecture supports the data reduction for three payloads on board HXMT and has some new features for large data analysis. This work will introduce the data analysis processing of HXMTDAS and the software architecture.
