CHARIS is an IFS designed for imaging and spectroscopy of disks and sub-stellar companions. To improve ease of use and efficiency of science production, we present progress on a fully-automated backend for CHARIS. This Automated Data Extraction, Processing, and Tracking System (ADEPTS) will log data files from CHARIS in a searchable database and perform all calibration and data extraction, yielding science-grade data cubes. The extracted data will also be run through a preset array of post-processing routines. With significant parallelization of data processing, ADEPTS will dramatically reduce the time between data acquisition and the availability of science-grade data products.
