EVLA System Verification

Antenna

Status Area Requirement Test
- Blind pointing at 8 GHz The rms blind pointing under good weather conditions (night time, wind speed < 5 m s-1) must be 6" or better for elevations between 30 and 70 degrees Full sky pointing run, noting number of failed solutions for each antenna
- Collimation offsets for bands other than X band Accuracy of collimation offset measurements and stability for offsets for EVLA antennas must meet or exceed those currently achieved by the VLA. The numbers will need to be derived from archival data. Standard collimation measurements by Operations.
