Standardize use of radians (inward facing) and degrees (outward facing) to project norm / match with MAF

v0.2

done

SOCS/Scheduler



Version 0.3 - May 20, 2016






Proposal Controls

Serendipity – be able to swap modes between counting a visit separately for an individual proposal; and counting for multiple proposals for which it fulfills.

v0.3

done

Scheduler



Models

Improved sims_skybrightness - including better twilight calculation (temporally, spatially and spectrally resolved, included solar variation)

v0.3

done

Scheduler

Unit testing

v0.3->v2.2





Version 1.0 - Feb 28, 2017






Proposal Controls

Be able to acquire visits uniformly in time

v1.0

done

Scheduler



Proposal Controls

v1.0

done

Scheduler



Proposal Controls

Limit visits to a field to N per night AND NO MORE

v1.0

done

Scheduler



Proposal Controls

Set an arbitrary value of tuples (visits to a field in a night)

v1.0

done

Scheduler



Proposal Controls

Standby – have a way to fill observing time that isn’t useful for any other proposal (termed "backup")

v1.0


Scheduler



Proposal Controls

Balance progress of all proposals to their specified goals

v1.0

done

Scheduler



Proposal Controls

Weight proposed targets with airmass

v1.0

done

Scheduler



Proposal Controls

Constrain vists in HA

v1.0

need details

Scheduler



Proposal Controls

Weight proposed targets with HA

v1.0

need details

Scheduler



Proposal Controls

Specific ra-dec range to specify field area (instead of userRegions) in a variety of coordinate systems

v1.0

done

Scheduler



Proposal Controls

Refine flags to enable an observation for a particular proposal be set to not count towards completing any other proposal. This is important for rolling cadence studies.v1.0doneScheduler

Models

Include detailed model of filter change mechanism ( not just 120s).

v1.0

need details

Scheduler



Models

Scattered light model including tracking of bright objects (planets & bright stars) [could be included in sims_skybrightness)

v1.0

need details

SOCS



System Capabilities
