Abstract: The large and complex datasets now being produced by NRAO telescopes mean that the traditional model of users downloading raw data and reducing it at their home institution is no longer viable in many cases. Pipelines are under development, but the complexity of the data reduction process means that users will frequently want to customize their reductions. To facilitate this, we are building a new combined archive interface and pipeline reprocessing tool that will allow users to select data and define pipeline reprocessing options through a web interface. The user will then be able to submit the job to an NRAO computing cluster, and download the results. We are currently to the point of having defined the system design and built a prototype.
