The Calibration Index File (CIF) provides this information for a given observation. This file is provided as part of the pipeline products. Moreover, it can be rebuilt during any SAS session through the cifbuild SAS task, specifying the observation date, the analysis date and the directory where the CCF are located (cf. ).
The CIF is a single binary table with the columns specified in Table 28. A CIF can also be generated based on the content of the XMM_CALINDEX File. This file contains a list of all CCF constituents released from the start of the mission until the date specified in the SUBDATE column.
