The Common Astronomy Software Applications (CASA) package is a set of C++ tools bundled together under an iPython interface as a set of data reduction tasks. CASA is being developed by a collaboration led by NRAO with the primary goal of supporting the data post-processing needs of the next generation of radio astronomical telescopes such as the ALMA and EVLA projects. The CASA tasks are oriented towards end-user data processing and analysis, while the toolkit is geared towards the support of pipeline processing, algorithm development, and the construction of tasks.
