What is NAPS doing ?

Shortly, once a SCAN is selected, the software :
- eliminates bad integrations (in the acquisition phases) - if required
- averages all integrations for each acquisition phase
- performs the phase arithmetic (for instance ON-OFF/OFF) for each cycle
- performs the flux density scale calibration
- averages the cycles
- displays and saves the result on disk (if required) in FITS format or in the NRT SIR data processing specific format.
