17.24 Cycle 30 Calibration Plan

The Cycle 30 calibration plan continues the standard monitoring programs established in previous Cycles, with minor adjustments to improve characterization of the instrument and to meet Cycle 30 GO calibration requirements.  Biennial monitoring of the three primary white dwarf flux standard stars (G191-B2B, GD71, GD153) -- done as special programs in cycles 24, 26, and 28 -- was incorporated into the regular calibration program.  No additional special calibration programs are currently planned for Cycle 30.

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