Abstract: Data Processing Discovery Agents (Discovery Agents or DAs in short) represent one of the key design concepts of the newly released Gemini Science Archive (GSA). It is a simple but promising solution for decomposing the functionality of the increasingly complex astronomical data archive systems. This paper presents the rationale behind this concept and discusses its main characteristics with examples from the GSA.
