The WFSC Commissioning Control Only template is used to change the shape of the primary mirror without taking any images. It is intended for initial deployments post-launch before instruments are powered on. A Wavefront Control File (provided by the WFSC Scientist) will be attached to each visit by the PPS Operator. The number of mirror move groups will always be 1 in the Wavefront Control File (i.e., only a single mirror move group will be executed onboard).
In addition to the following template parameters, this template will have the following special requirements added:
- PCS MODE = NONE
- NO PARALLEL
- WAVEFRONT SENSING = SENSING CONTROL
- DMS PRIORITY = STANDARD
Note for developers: If one of the default special requirements is removed or the value changed, give an error. Also note that there is no science data to process for this template, so the DMS PRIORITY special requirement has no effect.
The following parameters are generic to all templates, and are not discussed in this article: Observation Number, Observation Label, Observation Comments,and Special Requirements.
Note for developers: APT should automatically set Target to NONE.
This parameter specifies the estimated DURATION [SCIENCE_DURATION], in hours, needed to execute the WFSC Commissioning Control Only visit.Change log
