I'm a little confused.  Could you be more explicit about what kind of
data you are talking about?

In general, though, if the problem of removing background from data
can be expressed in the terms of the autobk algorithm, that is
removing the low frequency Fouirer components and leaving the high
frequency ones, then probably Athena will handle is ok.

You could always just read the data in and see what happens. ;-)
