Abstract: As part of the Astrophysical Virtual Observatory (AVO) we are developing an interoperability prototype which aims to federate a set of astronomical archives, representative of a variety of techniques (space/ground, images/spectra, X-ray to radio wavelengths) into the CDS VizieR and Aladin tools. The target archives for federation are: VLT, NTT, EIS (ESO), HST/ECF, ISO, XMM (ESA), Wide field UK archives, MERLIN, and Terapix. We demonstrate the interoperability of these federated archives with examples using multi-wavelength image data and catalog overlays, and highlight new functionalities of the federation and integration tools.
