DESDM has successfully executed difference imaging between the 2nd epoch and the templates from the first epoch. [The requirement on chi-squared of image subtraction has been moved to SN-R6].
A second visit to all the SN fields.
Successful production of SN templates.
Run the SN pipeline under DESDM control. The only requirement is that the pipeline execute without errors, produced all the required files, and fill the database properly. There is no requirement on pipeline performance for this requirement.
We will not be able to conduct the real-time SN survey until this goal is met.
