The Owens Valley Radio Observatory Long Wavelength Array is a low radio frequency all-sky imaging radio interferometer. The full 352-element array will generate more than 2 TB of visibility data per hour of observation. One of the array’s primary science cases, the search for variable radio emission from exoplanets and for transients, require fast and high dynamic range interferometric imaging. Here we detail the design and implementation of a two-pipeline infrastructure that minimizes development cost: an offline pipeline that facilitates experimentation with existing pack-ages, and a real-time pipeline that minimizes overhead.
