Dynamic and Fixed-Date Scheduling

by Stephan W. Witz last modified Jul 06, 2012 by Stephan Witz

Most projects on the VLA are observed dynamically, based on a combination of the scheduling priority and the expected properties of the array and the weather. Such dynamic scheduling enhances science data quality and the array's ability to discharge time-sensitive science. Some projects requiring coordinated observations with other telescopes will be scheduled on a fixed sidereal date.
