The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will be the largest interferometric radio telescope to date, with unprecedented resolution and sensitivity to study various phenomena of the universe. In data processing pipelines for radio telescopes, real time calibration, such as beam former and pointing offset calibration, are crucial for obtaining high-quality interferometric data from the observations. As an example, I will discuss the design and ongoing implementation of the pointing offset calibration pipeline within SKA ’s data processing software, describing the steps carried out to integrate the pipeline into telescope execution control and data queue system, as well as outlining challenges and greater implications on the data processing algorithm and software within the radio astronomy community.
