Astro-H Data Analysis, Processing and ArchiveAstro-H (Hitomi) is an X-ray Gamma-ray mission led by Japan with international participation, launched on February 17, 2016. The payload consists of four different instruments (SXS, SXI, HXI and SGD) that operate simultaneously to cover the energy range from 0.3 keV up to 600 keV. This paper presents the analysis software and the data processing pipeline created to calibrate and analyze the Hitomi science data along with the plan for the archive and user support.These activities have been a collaborative effort shared between scientists and software engineers working in several institutes in Japan and USA.
