17.13 Cycle 19 Calibration Plan

The Cycle 19 calibration plan continues the standard monitoring programs established in previous Cycles, while adjustments are being made as necessary to better characterize the instrument and to meet Cycle 19 GO calibration requirements.

In addition to the new and modified calibration programs, the following areas are under study for possible improvement.

  • Pixel based CTE correction.
  • Revised CCD dark temperature scaling relation.
  • The CCD and FUV-MAMA distortion solution.

A detailed summary of the calibration plans can be found on the STIS Calibration web page.
