Requirements and Goals Table

Instructions for Req/Goals procedures pages:

For each req. or goal, we should have the following written down:
  • Prerequisites (e.g. I need an astrometric solution accurate to 100 mas)
  • Procedure: the enumerated observations and analysis steps
  • Verdict: a clear mathematical expression of the quantities to be measured and what constitutes passing or failing the test.
  • Consequences: what we should do if the test fails.

It is fine to consolidate Requirements / Goals that have similar procedures onto a single wiki page.

Requested observations from Requirements and Goals

Requirements and Goals depend on observations that fall into two broad categories: regular (exposures with typical survey parameters) and special (exposures that need manual adjustments).

Status of Requirement Testing

This table shows for each requirement test (R) or goal test (G), its status in terms of results with data. Links are provided to the results. Tests are also described below and here.
