TIR-CDBS-2012-01: pysynphot/Synphot Throughput Files: Mapping to instrument components for ACS, COS, and WFC3
This document describes the pysynphot/Synphot throughput tables and provides with a detailed mapping of these files to the HST instruments as they follow the light path in the detector. It also describes how these files are used by py/Synphot to simulate HST observations.

TIR CDBS 2009-01A: Assesment and Delivery of Reference Files
This TIR revises an incorrect path to one of the tools offered in Section 8 of this document. This tool is required for the testing table reference files. Other than that it is identical to CDBS TIR 2009-01

TIR CDBS 2009-01: Assessment and Delivery of Reference Files
This TIR defines the standard procedures for the delivery of calibration pipeline reference and SYNPHOT data files. It clearly establishes the instrument and OTA teams’ responsibilities and provides guidelines for testing and verification of reference files. This is a revision to TIR 2008-01. In this revision, we update information to account for changes in the testing procedures for SYNPHOT files and add in how to test the files in pysynphot.

TIR CDBS 2009-02: Delivery of Reference Files to the Data Management Systems
This TIR describes the INS/CDBS Team's responsibilities. It defines the standard procedures for the delivery of calibration pipeline and SYNPHOT reference files to the Data Management Systems (DMS). It provides guidelines for test and validation of reference files by the INS/CDBS Team. This is an update to TIR CDBS 2008-02. It updates procedures added over the past year and explains how to test and deliver SYNPHOT/pysynphot files.
