  • 18B
    • Release Info for TAC. The plan is to release info to the TAC on 13 April 2018. There may be some issues for the GBT because of delays in assessing the non-open sky time. At the next TTA meeting we will reassess. We have some flexibility since the TAC face-to-face meeting has been pushed back one week.
    • TAC Agenda. Please comment on the TAC agenda. Attending in person from other sites are: AmyMioduszewski, MarkClaussen, MarkMcKinnon, BryanButler, ToneyMinter. Remote will be HeidiMedlin and BarryClark. Pending are: KarenONeil and WalterBrisken. JessicaUtley will handle logistics and DanaBalser will handle technical issues. Currently there is one remote TAC member; the plan is to use Zoom with the Polycom system.
  • 19A
    • Reviewer Volunteer Page. MarkClaussen has drafted a web page and form for review. Currently the web form is broken but he will fix this soon. Please provide feedback before the next TTA meeting. We briefly discussed how to advertise the page. We agreed to include this in the newsletters and to add links to the TTA pages. The PST Dashboard was suggested but folks tend not to read this page.
    • PST Requirements.
      • Telescope Resource Updates (high priority):
        • VLA. They have not had the meeting yet to discuss new items. But it is likely that P-band Spectroscopy (SSA-4528), Frequency averaging, and On-the-Fly will become General Observing.
        • VLBA. Add Mark VI with 4 Gbps recording mode (SSA-4638). This may take some effort in the PST.
        • GBT. No big changes and possibly no updates.
      • SSA-4635 (high priority) Add XMM-Newton as a Joint External Facility. Not final yet but we should proceed as if it will be offered.
      • SSA-4528 (high priority) PST: fix P-band spectroscopy for 19A.
      • SSA-4638 (high priority) Enable 4 Gbps recording mode as Shared Risk.
      • SSA-4192 (medium priority) PST: NED/SIMBAD search preferences. Provide user with option of using either NED or Simbad coordinates.
      • SSA-4622 (medium priority) LST Range Calculation. There are also issues with the LST calculation for the VLBA; MarkClaussen will add this as a separate ticket.
      • SSA-2964 (low priority) PST: Withdraw Proposal Problem. RickLively has not been able to reproduce this problem but will now test on My Proposals page instead of Proposal List page.
      • SSA-4580 (low priority) Option for one proposal PDF per folder. RickLively will check if this ticket should be a review ticket. Currently the user can select many proposals on the My Review page and generate a single PDF file. We would like to have an option to produce one PDF file per proposal. There is something similar to this on the Proposal List page but it involves the Download button and involves directories.
      • SSA-4225 (low priority) PST: add caption field to upload figs.
      • Technical Justification Updates. We will discuss these at the next TTA meeting. MarkClaussen and LorantSjouwerman will add to JIRA.
  • AOB
    • X-Proposals. LewisBall noted that a pre-announcement will go out with the E-News. A similar announcement is appropriate for GBO and LBO.
    • TAC Chair. LewisBall announced that the EGS chair has agreed to be the TAC chair for the next 3 semesters. He has requests out to replace the ISM and HIZ chairs.
    • Triggered Proposals. LewisBall could not find any information on our web pages about what information from a proposal becomes public. Please send him any place where this is mentioned.
