  • News
    • Unilateral Antenna Spec Changes: ACA 7m Comments?
    • TICRA reports
    • Schedule. SCIE Early Science Key Triggers
      • CSV = 3 ant ready to be commissioned (29Mar2009 as of today's schedule)
      • ESDP = CSV + 12 = 29Jan2010 (at this date we would be ready to commission Ant#16 more or less)
      • ES = CSV + 20 = 29Sep2010 (at this date we would be ready to commission Ant#26 more or less, which should be fine in respect to the "minimum" requirement of 16 ant array)
    • ATF: CIPT and Sci IPT will share the use of the ATF the week of 2 Jan. As per discussions with Darrel, Brian, Dick and Al the current schedule is below. Please let Debra know if anyone has any issues with this.
