WSA is the mission legacy that guarantees that the mission products will be usable by future users, for research, education and engineering analyses, well beyond the S/C life expired and the spacecraft operations ended. It will allow the astronomers from any country have the opportunity of accessing the high-quality data of the mission at any time (once the data is made public).
