SOFIA Spec Tree (SOF-DF-SPE-SE01-068 Rev. D) Science Instrument System Specification SOF-AR-SPE-SE01-2028
The reorganization More details can be found in “Experimenter’s Handbook restructuring” memo to be issued shortly ICP Guidelines (USRA-DAL-SSMOC-SCIN-PLAN-4100) Experiment Developers Handbook (OP03-001) Was: Science Instrument System Specification (SOF-AR-SPE-SE01-2028) Instrument Developers Handbook (SCI-AR-HBK-OP03-2000) Observer’s Handbook () Is: SI System Spec – Will contain requirements (shall statements) for SI instruments, including performance, airworthiness, and quality assurance. It will also reference the ICDs applicable to the science instruments. Instrument Developer’s Handbook – Will be a narrative guide describing how an instrument is developed, discussing the documents to be delivered and the reviews that will be held. Observer’s Handbook – Will be a narrative guide describing how to apply for and use observing time on SOFIA.
