  • 15B
    • CfP status. Telescope content is essentially in place. One HSA item to add. The Intro and News & Opportunities sections need to be updated. We need this completed by 26 Dec.
    • Timeline. No issues with the new timeline except we should give the TAC a few days between the release of TAC info (13 Apr) and the Large Proposal telecon (14-17 Apr).
    • Science Operations Coordination. ClaireChandler gave a demo of the sharepoint science operations coordination page. There are different views of the various tasks (timeline, list, calendar, etc.). Links to JIRA tickets are also included. You can find this page here:
    • PST Testing. DavidFrayer tested the GBT items with no issues found. MarkClaussen has not found any issues with VLA/VLBA but has some more testing to do. RickLively preformed a stress test on the new PDF generation code. He was able to print all proposals except one VLBA proposal (which has been fixed). The load on jasper increased but was reasonable and returned to normal after the printing was completed. JenPlank is still working on a few items. Everyone please print out a few proposals and see if there are any problems.
    • External Tools
      • GOST. LorantSjouwerman has tested GOST and everything looks good. RickLively will check to make sure there are no java issues. GustaafVanMoorsel will check that GOST works with a Mac.
      • VLA Exposure Calc. RickLIvely has completed the software changes and MarkClaussen needs to test.
      • GBT Sensitivity Calc. ToneyMInter reported that the few changes will be in place by the call for proposals.
    • PHT BarryClark reviewed the JIRA tickets. A few should be closed. He added a few more. GustaafVanMoorsel will put together a plan of record for discussion. It would be good to have requirements early so the software folks can start working on them earlier (the deadline is Feb 1).
    • SRP Recruitment. MarkClaussen reported that 19/40 slots need to be filled. DavidFrayer has filled 5/10 from his SRPs and has 5 invitations out. MarkClaussen has filled 2/9 from his SRPs and has a few invitations out.
    • TAC Recruitment. There was some confusion about the number of TAC members to recruit. MarkClaussen will email TimBastian for confirmation.
    • Next TTA meeting. The next two TTA meeting slots (25 Dec and 1 Jan) are holidays, and the following week is the AAS meeting. We agreed that email would suffice for the next two weeks and if necessary we will have a meeting on 8 Jan; otherwise the next meeting will be 15 Jan.

  • AOB
    • Documentation. The documentation for the CfP is in good shape.
