PowellSnakes (PwS) is a Bayesian detection methodology aimed at compact objects, whose principal development goal has been formal correctness and optimal use of all the available information in a consistent unified framework. PwS has been selected and successfully employed by the Planck consortium in several of their official products, namely the point source and SZ cluster catalogues of the Early Release Compact Source Catalogue (ERCSC).
