Abstract : AstroSat, India's first multiwavelength space mission, is operating in space for more than a year now. It carries four co-aligned payloads and an X-ray sky monitor, covering optical/UV to hard X-rays. I will briefly describe the capabilities and status of the instruments, available software and tools. AstroSat is a proposal-driven observatory, and is available to the astronomy community in India. I will describe the proposal-driven operation of AstroSat, current usage statistics, and the support available from the AstroSat Science Support Cell to the user community.
