This tasks clones the following OM ODFs for subsequent pipeline processing: OM Imaging Mode Data Image File (two copies made), OM Fast Mode Event List File and the OM Tracking History Data Auxiliary File.

Values for additional FITS header keywords necessary for the creation of SSC Data products by subsequent pipeline tasks are taken directly from the OM Priority Window Data Auxiliary File, the OM Periodic and Non-Periodic Housekeeping Files and from the OM Observation Summary File through the ODF Access Layer(OAL) and stored in the Primary Header of the output files.

For Fast and Tracking Modes, the data stored in the input ODFs is transfered to the output files with no alteration. For Imaging Mode, data stored in the ODF Image Array as 32 bit integer numbers is stored as 32 bit real numbers in the Primary Array of the output file.

For Fast and Imaging Modes a MODES extension is added containing science window details.
