The GBT Dynamic Scheduling System

December 14

12:10PM, Room 230, NRAO, Edgemont Road


As you may be aware, we are in the process of designing and implementing a new scheduling scheme for the GBT which is designed to take the best possible advantage of the current weather - the new GBT Dynamic Scheduling System (DSS). The DSS is scheduled to have its first test run in the 08B semester and, assuming the tests are successful, will be deployed in Fall, 2009. As the new GBT Dynamic Scheduling System will affect everyone who uses or works on the GBT, we encourage all current and future GBT users to attend this meeting.

We will be giving a presentation to all interested CV staff in which we will describe our plans for the new GBT DSS. This meeting is not only informational, but is the opportunity for anyone interested to provide feedback regarding the project plans and timeline. Members of the DSS team will be staying around after the presentation for any questions or discussions which cannot be covered in the 1 hour time period.
