An Event Broker is an automated service that augments a transient/variable alert stream by association of auxiliary information, characterization, classification, and publication with support of filters, detection gates and other services.
The motivation for the NOAO project is to guarantee availability to the community of a proven broker service at the time that the LSST survey alert stream begins circa 2022.
Event Broker: The objective of the present formulation of the WG project is to prototype essential functionality, to operate the prototype capabilities for near-term science objectives, to develop a scalable architecture, and based on the experience acquired, to develop the requirements for the LSST-scale broker service. Pending resource availability, the second phase of the task will be completed in FY2014.
What Capabilities Do GeminiUsers Want?
Surveys of the US community over the last four years have shown that the greatest demand for Gemini instrumentation is general purpose spectrographs.
