Fermi Users Group

FSSC News and Operations Support

Chris Shrader, Fermi Science support Center NASA/GSFC

Fermi Users Group Meeting Goddard Space Flight Center, August 16, 2013 C. Shrader, NASA/GSFC

fssc status major activities
FSSC Status, Major Activities
  • Preparations for P7R and ST release next month
  • GI Cycle-6 program implemented
  • User support; query rate indicative of strong community engagement
  • Operations support;
    • Resources for GI assessment of new observation strategies

Fermi Users Group Meeting Goddard Space Flight Center, August 16, 2013 C. Shrader, NASA/GSFC

a few fssc highlights
A few FSSC Highlights
  • Over 20Tb of data served to community, 400 Guest Investigations!
  • User contributed tools from FSSC
    • Scripted analyses, including ones which facilitate multi-processor applications
    • GUI driven quick look analysis (release imminent) and full ST analyses

cycle 6 gi program
Cycle 6 GI Program
  • Record number of proposals received; 233
    • Lengthy delay between review and Stage-I selections
  • 50 new programs selected (49 new grants), plus 4 large project continuation approvals
    • Pre-sequester: anticipated about 67
    • One new large project (out of 3 requests)
    • New precedent: one progress report rejection
  • Obviously very competitive
    • 23% accept rate

Summarize…

Fermi Users Group Meeting Goddard Space Flight Center, August 16, 2013 C. Shrader, NASA/GSFC

a few issues
A Few Issues
  • Review committees had concerns with compliancy issues
    • Formatting guidelines ignored in ~5%
  • Response to new Arecibo joint program disappointing
    • Need to advertise better
    • Good response to other programs: awarded 640/120/30 hrs to NRAO/NOAO/VERITAS
    • No post-sequester Suzaku

cycle 7 possible changes
Cycle 7: Possible Changes?
  • Issues for FUG discussion?
    • Multi-year programs can become problematic in times of uncertain and decreasing budgets
      • Consider discontinuation or reduction?
    • Smaller grants or fewer participants?
  • NRA changes:
    • Describe alternative observing mode impacts, opportunities
    • Emphasize new opportunities (eg Arecibo) and rules (e.g. proposal format)

cycle 7 schedule
Cycle 7 Schedule
  • Slip by 1-2 months for FY budget phasing
  • Fund all cycle-7 grants in FY15
    • Budget tbd, but comparable to Cycle 6
  • Relieves some schedule pressure, plus advantageous to hold review after university semesters end
  • NRA modifications must precede due date by slip + 4 months
