A Brief History of VeSPA

VeSPA consists of three combined applications called RFPulse, Simulation and Analysis that were migrated from three previous standalone applications:

  • RFPulse <-> MatPulse - software for RF pulse design written in Matlab
  • Simulation <-> GAVA/Gamma - software for spectral simulation written in IDL
  • Analysis <-> IDL_Vespa - a package for spectral data processing and analysis written in IDL

The new VeSPA project addresses previous software limitations, including: non-standard data access, closed source multiple language software that complicates algorithm extension and comparison, lack of integration between programs for sharing prior information, and incomplete or missing documentation and educational content.
