As part of the agreement between ESO and Institut de Planétologie et d'Astrophysique de Grenoble (IPAG) to offer the VLTI PIONIER instrument in Service and Visitor Modes for Periods 96 to 99, IPAG has committed to process the raw data and deliver calibrated visibility data (squared visibility amplitudes and closure phases) to the ESO Science Archive Facility.

The science data obtained with PIONIER between 1 October 2015 and 1 January 2017 (P96, P97 and half of P98) are now available as reduced data via the Science Archive Facility. The data were processed by Jean-Baptiste Le Bouquin of IPAG, using the PNDRS pipeline version 3.53 written and maintained by him.

The PIONIER calibrated visibility data can be queried and downloaded using the Phase 3 generic query form that provides access to all Phase 3 data. More details about the PIONIER data are available in the associated Phase 3 data release description.
