Software for the K-band Focal Plane Array (KFPA)

GBT software improvements and extensions are a critical part of the KFPA project, which will enable important new scientific results to be obtained with the GBT and KFPA.

Data Pipeline Effort

We plan a revolutionary change in the standard method of GBT data reduction, starting with the KFPA project. For a certain set of standard KFPA observing modes, the images will be automatically calibrated, gridded, merged and provided to the observer. The development of this idea is presented below as a series of links to planning meetings.

To achieve automatic display and reduction of the KFPA images, we will need to make a number of improvements and extensions to the existing GBT software system.
  • Pipeline interface Directives to GBT observing system. (Allows setting Pipeline start/stop and mapping parameters such as map center, size, flagging and mapping techniques).
