orbit packing today
Orbit Packing Today
  • Exposure specifications are defined in “.prop” files using PED or text editor.
  • Trans expands the exposure specifications into the actual exposures.
  • User has no control over individual expanded exposures.
orbit packing today cont d
Orbit Packing Today (cont’d)
  • Trans assigns expanded exposures to orbits, adjusting their durations to “optimize” the orbit packing.
  • The DG displays orbit packing results.
  • Viewing the effects of changes to a proposal requires rerunning the entire proposal through the Preprocessor and Trans.

Orbit Packing in APT
  • APT will replace RPS2 in cycle 12.
  • Exposure specifications will be defined in “.xml” files using APT, not text editor.
  • User will be able to specify duration and orbit for expanded exposures.
  • Trans will not adjust expanded exposure durations for orbit packing.
  • Orbit Planner will display orbit packing results.
  • Viewing the effects of changes to a proposal requires only a partial run through Trans.

Orbit Packing in Cycle 12 Ops
  • APT will not replace PC Toolbox in cycle 12.
  • “.xml” file will be primary proposal representation, but will be converted to “.prop” for use in Ops.
  • “.prop” files will contain duration and orbit number for expanded exposures.
  • Changes to proposal need to be made in APT, not PED or text editor.

  • Trans will adjust expanded exposure durations up to 20% to optimize orbit packing (available mid cycle 12).

retransing cycle 12 proposals
Retransing Cycle 12 Proposals
  • To minimize manual effort needed to retrans proposals, Operational Trans will adjust expanded exposure durations up to 20% to optimize orbit packing.
retransing earlier proposals
Retransing Earlier Proposals
  • Proposal created prior to cycle 12 will not have orbit assignments for expanded exposures.
  • Without those orbit specifications, Trans cannot be guaranteed to recreate the same orbit structure it had when the last time it was processed.
  • We address this with two plans…
retransing earlier proposals plan a
Retransing Earlier Proposals – Plan A
  • Allow Trans to recompute the orbit packing.
  • If we don’t like the orbit packing it created, we could:
    • Live with using APT to edit the proposal to create a better packing.
    • When the packing is acceptable except for exceeding the orbit allocation, allow the extra orbit(s).
  • During development, analyze new Trans orbit packing to see how much it matches old Trans.
slide14
Retransing Earlier Proposals – Plan B (if analysis shows new Trans orbit packing differs greatly from that of old Trans)
  • Trans could be configured to write a report detailing the orbit packing.
  • All outstanding proposals could be run through that version of Trans to create a record of the “correct” orbit packing.
  • That record could then be fed to Trans whenever one of those proposals was retransed.
dependencies
Dependencies
  • This new operational flow depends on development in:
    • Orbit Planner
    • APT infrastructure
    • Trans
    • RPS2
    • PC Toolbox
  • Most work to complete by mid summer, 2002.
    • Currently on schedule.
    • Allows time to react if problems come up.
  • Operational integration in 4th quarter, 2002.
wrap up
Wrap-Up
  • The transition to APT will cause significant changes to the operational work flow.
  • Development and testing will be coordinated with the Trans team and the PC team.
