17.25 Cycle 31 Calibration Plan

The Cycle 31 calibration plan continues the standard monitoring programs established in previous Cycles, with minor adjustments to improve characterization of the instrument and to meet Cycle 31 GO calibration requirements.  Also included is a special calibration program to supplement the NUV spectroscopic sensitivity monitoring observations through solar maximum.  This program increases the cadence of monitoring observations with the NUV-MAMA and CCD to better track sensitivity changes between 1800 and 2100 Angstroms.

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