Wfc3 team role

WFC3 Team Role

  • WFC3 team at STScI has responsibility for all aspects on instrument commissioning (no separate IDT)

    • Engineering support from STScI and WFC3 Project at GSFC

    • Randy Kimble will provide part time Science IPT support in SMOV

    • GSFC/DCL retains some detector experiment and analysis resources

    • ERO team responsible for conduct of ERO program

    • WFC3 SOC responsible for Early Release Science (feedback on calibrations)

    • ESA/ECF responsible via MOU for GRISM support and calibration

  • WFC3 team is organized into “tasks” with individual task leads and matrixed team members supporting each task.

    • Most team members have extensive experience with WFC3 ground testing

    • Resources planned to accommodate work peaks

    • Evolving model to incorporate 3-4 FTE growth in Sept/Oct timeframe


Team organization leads

Team Organization & Leads

  • Group Tasks:

    • SM4 Support: Larry Petro

    • SMOV: Andre Martel

    • TV3 Analysis: Howard Bushouse (complete prior to SM4)

    • Cycle 17 Calibration: Susana Deustua

  • Process Tasks:

    • Calibration Products: Sylvia Baggett

    • Software and Data Processing: Howard Bushouse

    • User Support: Cheryl Pavlovsky

    • Documentation: Jessica Kim Quijano

    • Operations Support: Larry Petro

  • Analysis Tasks:

    • Imaging: Linda Dressel

    • Photometry: Tom Brown

    • Detectors: Peter McCullough

    • Grisms: ECF with Howard Bushouse as interface


Commissioning strategy

Commissioning Strategy

  • WFC3 is by design an instrument with few modes

    • UVIS Channel: Imaging and Spectra

    • IR Channel: Imaging and Spectra

    • Engineering: UVIS Detector Anneal

  • Commissioning Sequence

    • Provide operational integrity of instrument (mechs, memory, etc).

    • Establish operating conditions (e.g. thermal setpoints for detectors)

    • Optical Alignment

    • ERO Science

    • Initial SMOV calibrations

    • “Easy” Science enabled

    • Science Oversight Committee Early Release Science starts

    • Remainder of SMOV calibrations

    • “Hard” Science enabled


Contingency plans

Contingency Plans

  • WFC3 SMOV design is primarily channel based

    • Failure of initial engineering tests would lead to side switch

    • Any CSM problems should be seen in SM4 FT

    • Either UVIS or IR commissioning can proceed without the other

      • One LOS stability program is joint to save orbits

  • Major risk areas within each channel

    • Detector cooling: margin exists to operate warmer

    • Detector noise: most of SMOV can proceed during analysis of cause

    • Limitations of ground test/calibration:

      • IR background relies upon models

      • Astrometric and Photometric stability (including “bowtie”)

      • UVIS Shutter jitter and IR EMI

  • Phased start to GO science observations

    • EASY = programs not pushing on risk areas (can overlap sci cal part of SMOV)

    • HARD = programs dependent upon performance in “risk areas”

      • Defer 2-3 months until SMOV determines if these programs require modification


Sm4 support from stsci wfc3

SM4 Support from STScI/WFC3

  • Larry Petro (STScI WFC3 group) is responsible for organization of Sci IPT support and training, FT science contents, software tool development for FT analysis, and science performance assessment

  • Orbit Shift @ GSFC

    • Larry Petro on SI Console monitoring AT

    • George Hartig in Science room

  • Planning Shift @ GSFC

    • Howard Bushouse on SI Console monitoring FT

      • Conducts FT analysis in Science room

    • John MacKenty in Science room to assess Science Pass/Fail

  • Planning Shift @ STScI

    • Sylvia Baggett and Bryan Hilbert in STRESS to provide independent analysis of FT data


Smov organization

SMOV Organization

  • Andre Martel is responsible for WFC3 SMOV coordination

    • SMOV Activity Summaries (DONE)

    • SMOV Phase 2 Proposals and PIT reviews (DONE)

    • SMOV Analysis Plan (DONE)

    • SMOV Scheduling support

    • SMOV analysis, reporting (daily and via ISRs)

    • SMOV final report

  • Entire team involved in SMOV support

  • Proposal PI’s mostly based on Thermal Vac activity leads

    • Observing strategy combination of TV and ACS/NICMOS

    • Analysis strategy follows TV (quicklook, ISR, products)


Smov development status

SMOV Development Status

  • WFC3 SMOV development process complete

  • One new Activity Summary (WF44) was added

    • “UVIS Bowtie monitor”

    • 3x3 binned internal flats at 2x per day for first 4 months

    • DCL testing indicates 10x saturation may alleviate bowtie

    • Proposal does 0.5 – 10 – 0.5 full well flats in F475X

  • Activity Summary (WF41) IR photometry monitor was in the Phase 1 plan as a contingency – not implemented based on TV3 results

  • Current plan is ~160 external orbits


Wfc3 smov strategy

WFC3 SMOV Strategy

  • WFC3 schedule paced by 21 day detector venting and Bright Earth avoidance periods prior to cooling detectors.

  • Three phase approach:

    • Engineering Checks and Detector cooldown

      • overlaps/follows 21 day venting period

    • Optical Alignment

    • Calibration

  • Bifurcated SMOV4 design to avoid linkage between UVIS and IR channels

    • Each can proceed at its own pace

    • Only linked test is the CSM check immediately after cooldown

  • Anticipated Schedule for Oct 10 SM4 launch

    • Detector cooldown 9 November

    • Early Release Observations taken first week of December

    • SOC Early Release Science start third week of December

    • GO Science Observations begin late December/early January


Wfc3 smov drivers

WFC3 SMOV Drivers

  • Re-commissioning of HST observatory to resume science operations at the earliest possible date

    • Without undue risk of obtaining unsatisfactory data

    • Acquire Early Release Observations to demonstrate results of SM4 to public

  • Detectors

    • Vent detector enclosures for 21 days per CARD

      • WFC3 in Protect/Safe to keep optics as warm as possible

      • HST in BEA to protect WFC3 Pick-Off-Mirror

    • Cool detectors to planned operating temperatures

      • Demonstrate we can reach and maintain for at least Cy17 -83C (UVIS) and -128C (IR)

      • Look at overall WFC3 thermal behavior – correlate TV3 performance and tune if needed

  • Establish optical alignment using same approach as ACS

  • Early Calibrations

    • Internal flat fields dependent upon (potentially) limited life D2 lamp

    • Photometric zero points to avoid taking overexposed science observations

  • Resolve issues for Cy18 CP

    • Remaining TV3 unknowns: bowtie, shutter jitter, LOS stability

  • Initiate key monitors

    • Hot pixel anneal, UV throughput/contamination, CTE

    • Software tools (e.g. calibration automation)


Grism analysis

Grism Analysis

  • The WFC3 IR Grisms account for nearly as many scheduled orbits as the STIS instrument (352 orbits!)

  • The UV Grism is only used by a single SNAP proposal

  • The user support and calibration of the Grisms has been outsourced to the ESA/ECF team

    • They successfully supported TV2&3 plus Cy17 Phase 1 and 2

    • Howard Bushouse is the STScI point of contact for the ECF

  • The UV Grism has many orders with spectral overlap

    • Difficult to use -- minimal effort is planned for SMOV & early Cy17

  • No major issues are known with the IR Grisms

    • Ground and SMOV calibrations are in place


Multidrizzle

MultiDrizzle

  • Multidrizzle important for WFC3 science and archive

    • WFC3 has greater geometric distortion than prior instruments

      • IR channel is 123 x 139 arc seconds FOV onto square detector

    • Users have become expert with image combination techniques

  • WFC3 pipeline designed to produce outputs ready for Multidrizzle (very similar to ACS)

  • WFC3 support for Multidrizzle lead by Linda Dressel

  • Calibration

    • SMOV provides initial geometric distortion and SI location data

    • Stability of these calibrations to be determined during SMOV/Cy17

  • Testing

    • Thermal vac did not measure plate scale or distortion

    • Pre-launch database loaded with optical model derived data

    • Simulated WFC3 data successfully run in Multidrizzle

    • Full-up testing awaits on-orbit operations


Conclusions

Conclusions

  • WFC3 team is ready for SMOV assuming nominal instrument performance

    • ERO timeline is challenging – especially geometric distortion for constructing mosaic images

    • Project should recognize that detailed understanding of the potential of WFC3 will probably not be in hand at time of AAS (~2-3 weeks later)

  • Team and Ground system is ready to support SM4

    • FT analysis well practiced with realistic data from ground testing

    • Redundant analysis paths exist and have been tested

  • Team and Ground system is ready to support SMOV

    • Augmentations in process for central data store

    • Team well versed in processing WFC3 data from TV experience

  • Team and Ground system is ready for Cycle 17 science operations

    • Ground testing of geometric distortion and multi-drizzle limited in scope

      • Significant work post SM4 to obtain distortion calibration (schedule driver)

      • Multi-drizzle leverages ACS experience and is tested with WFC3 datasets

    • Future enhancements for efficiency are Cycle 18 issues (no Cy17 development)

Decision points

Decision points

  • These are the main decision points we will need to pass during the first few weeks of SMOV (approximate dates for an October 10 launch)

    • TBD (after the SM4 FT) Two-detector mode

    • 10/23 FPGA data transfer rate

    • 10/28 (after analysis of the data of the first iteration)

      • Execution of optimization campaign (decision matrix on next page)

      • Change of default CDS for optimization campaign

    • 10/30 Changes to 2nd week of optimization campaign

    • 11/6 Changes/removal of 3rd week of optimization campaign

    • TBD End of optimization campaign

      • Clamp and Sample vs Dual slope for SMOV and Science

      • Decision based on overall performance


Decision matrix

Decision Matrix


Acs priorities

ACS Priorities

  • Determined by:

  • Cycle 17 demand (WFC ~20%; HRC ~4%)

  • SMOV requirements (SBC needed):

  • Top priority - WFC + optimization campaign

  • - Monitoring UV contamination with SBC

  • Low priority - HRC + coronagraph

  • (HRC activities could be delayed e.g. if WFC optimization is not fully successful)


If difficulties arise

If difficulties arise:

  • CCD Anneal - may need to develop alternative strategies if the heaters cannot be operated.

  • WFCreadout noise is higher than expected:

  • Plans in place to review affected ACS Cycle 17 proposals (being identified by Phase II reviewers now)

  • Consider introducing half-speed readout mode in Cycle 18

  • HRC does not function:

  • All HRC and WFC activities are either separate SMOV proposals or visits - minimal disruption to SMOV plan.

  • Affected Cycle 17 proposals will be reviewed to determine if the science can be executed with other instruments.


Data analysis plans

Data Analysis Plans

  • Most of the data will be analyzed using well established procedures developed before ACS failure

  • Some new scripts have been written (e.g. analysis of FT data) and these have been tested during JIS/TV

  • The results of many of the analyses will be compared with results before ACS failure (e.g. CTE, sensitivity, flat-field stability, geometric distortion)

  • Data obtained just prior to SM4 has/will be analyzed prior to SM4

  • Regular team meetings are being held to ensure readiness for the data analysis aspects


Products

Products

  • CCD parameters (read-out noise, bias levels, gain)

  • Reference files - (e.g. darks, flat-fields, sensitivities, CTE, geometric distortion coefficients)

  • ISRs and TIRs

  • Updates to IHB

  • Updates to web pages

Conclusion:The ACS team is ready to

support SM4 and SMOV

Nicmos operations through sm4

NICMOS Operations through SM4

  • Before SM4 - NICMOS will continue to operate as normal, with one exception:

    • About 4 weeks prior to SM4 the NCS will be turned off for a NSSC-I FSW upgrade. NCS will be off for 18-24 hours and then turned back on again.

    • The impact on the dewar temperature will be small. A cool-down time of 48 hours should ensure a return to nominal detector temperature (77.15K).

  • During SM4:

    • NICMOS will not be directly involved in any EVA activities, but during EVA4 (STIS repair) the astronauts will work in the vicinity of NICMOS and the NCS.

    • NICMOS Team representative present during EVA4 in case activities involve NICMOS/NCS. Participated in JIS2 in May 2008.


Nicmos warm up cool down

NICMOS Warm-up & Cool-down

  • The most critical issue for NICMOS is to minimize the warm-up, and cool down the dewar following NCS startup:

    • The NCS will be off for 9 days, resulting in a dewar warm-up of ~120K (dewar temperature ~200K).

    • Uncertain due to small amount of data and large dispersion.

    • Jan 1999 warm-up different due to residual cryogenics.

NICMOS Warm-up & Cool-down

Cool–down of the NICMOS dewar (from 3 NCS start-ups)

Red curve = weighted average of the Ne inlet and outlet temperatures

A cool–down period of 14 days will be more than sufficient to reach the nominal temperature of 77.15K.

Specific concerns for nicmos smov4

Specific Concerns for NICMOS SMOV4

  • NCS cool down time

    • Two weeks should be sufficient to reach nominal detector temperature (with a margin), but all previous warm-up/cool-down event have been different from each other

  • Deformation of the dewar/optical path

    • Thermally induced deformation could lead to large and unforeseen corrections to PAM/FOM and aperture locations/optical plate scale


Summary nicmos sm4 readiness

SummaryNICMOS SM4 Readiness

  • All SMOV4 proposals are ready

  • The data analysis teams are defined

  • Analysis software routines are being tested

  • NICMOS will be ERO/Science enabled by the end of SMOV week 5 (but photometrically uncalibrated)

  • NICMOS will be coronagraphic enabled by the end of SMOV4

Sm4 readiness review

FGS & OTA Responsibilities

  • The STScI FGS/OTA team provides support for the following SMOV activities:

    • FGS Calibration

      • Described in detail in the following slides.

    • SI-to-FGS alignment

      • Locations and Orientations in HST V frame are determined during SMOV as part of each SI’s SMOV plan.

      • Worked with SI teams to produce and “PIT” SI-FGS alignment proposals.

      • Will perform the analyses to determine resulting values (with E. Kimmer et al/GSFC & SI teams,STScI).

      • Will update SCIOPSDB/SIAF tables with calibration results (with OED/STScI).

      • Procedures, timescales, and responsibilities in this area are understood and agreed-upon. Involved staff have experience and familiarity with this process from past Servicing Missions and focal plane calibrations.

    • HST Focus

      • We are entering SMOV with the OTA stable and well-focused for the existing complement of SIs, fulfilling an assumption of the SMOV Requirements.

      • As a result, if the locations of the focal surfaces in ACS, STIS, and NICMOS have not been altered, then the COS and WFC3 focusing activities during SMOV (covered under their plans) should result in good confocality among all the SIs without additional coordination.

      • We will support the SI teams if needed with PSF examinations, including phase retrieval, especially for the existing SIs, whose optical characteristics on orbit are well-established.

      • OTA-level contingencies (e.g. WFC3 focus found outside viable range) and possible responses have been identified. A team would be formed to investigate and recommend course of action to HSTP.

  • FGS/OTA at STScI is “go” for SMOV4, with no outstanding concerns.
