Position Switched Pipeline Calibration Plan

Note that much of the content of this documentation is out of date. Please refer to the GBT Pipeline documentation instead!!!

This page highlights revisions to the position switched calibration plan for the KFPA pipeline. The revised documents are listed in reverse chronological order. The frequency switched calibration plan is also available.

Revised KFPA pipeline user interface to allow entry of \eta_B

Added revised calibration values based on engineering design documents.

Added revised pipeline input file summary, and removed rest of imaging text to the observers guide. Fixed definition of TA*

Added definition of default output images (spectral line cube with every three channels average, and a continuum image with all channels averaged).

The PS document includes Joe and Bob's comments, many more details of AIPS processing and also the identification of key pipeline scans using the OBSID keyword. The latest version defines more competely the PTCS values used in calibration and gives an example input file:

Ron Maddelena's Memo on Beam Efficiency.

The beam efficiency Model defines some calibration parameters used by the Pipeline.
