Frossie Economou

Joint Astronomy Centre, Hawaii


The omp team
The OMP team

  • Tim Jenness, Matthew Rippa, Kynan DeLorey

  • Remo Tilanus, Paul Hirst

  • Martin Folger

  • Ramped up January 2001

OMP


Why the omp
Why the OMP

  • JCMT is flexing but with a high administrative overhead

  • UKIRT wishes to flex but cannot afford the overhead

  • The OMP will provide generic, modular and supportable tools to allow flexing with minimal staff effort

  • Will be usable wherever the ORAC-OT is used, including future instruments such as Michelle, ACSIS, UIST, WFCAM & SCUBA2.

OMP


The omp system what it is
The OMP System - what it is

  • A suite of software to manage the project cycle

  • Optimised for flexible scheduling

  • Has an interface to observation preparation (ORAC-OT)

  • Also deals with post observation management of information

OMP


The omp system what it isn t
The OMP System - what it isn't

  • Has no formal interface to acquisition or data reduction

  • It essentially deals with two things:

    • MSBs

    • Project Status

OMP


What is an msb
What is an MSB?

  • One or more observations

  • Fully reducible (includes calibrations)

  • Efficient length

OMP


Omp system components
OMP system components

  • MSB database

  • Query Tool

  • Project status database

  • Feedback tool

  • Assistant scripts & ORAC-DR recipes

OMP


Related components
Related components

  • Scheduling component for the OT

  • The OM (Chooser) / Translator / Queue (OS)

OMP


Msb dia
MSB.dia

OMP


Ot interface
OT interface

  • Mainly met by extending the site quality component

  • Logic via subversion of groups and folders

OMP



Progress
Progress

  • Prototyped the new techonology (CORBA communication)

  • A preliminary version of the XML OT has been delivered

  • Carried out proof of concept exercises of the MSB database at JCMT (ENA, RPT, RRP) and UKIRT (PH)

  • The interfaces to the JCMT OCS system have been defined

  • Currently prototyping the QT and Feedback tool

OMP


Upcoming
Upcoming

  • Technical document review in May

  • Test major system components on the UKIRT Service queue (circa July)

  • Meet start of Michelle common-user observing (circa October)

  • Comission on ACSIS (circa April 2002)

OMP


Summary
Summary

  • No technical risks

  • Maintaining project effort is the major consideration
