DAITSS (Dark Archive In The Sunshine State) is a longterm preservation system with a special focus on data integrity and normalisation. It was developed for the Florida Digital Archive (FDA) as a dark archive- an archive which isn't accessible for the public view and therefore for internal uses only.
Beside the manual and automatic function to add metadata to files, this long term preservation software uses a technique called "normalisation": Data formats are upgraded automatically to the most recent and standardised version (e.g. .doc to .docx) and corrected if corrupted. If the automatic part fails, the systems informs a user about it, who can decide how the file should be handled. To avoid problems with automatic normalisations, original data is always stored besides the treated data.
DAITSS follows the standards CCSDS 650.0-B-1
and ISO 14721:2003
