ASKAP Update for March
March's ASKAP update describes ongoing efforts to migrate processing to Setonix, efforts to support additional survey modes, CRACO (CRAFT Coherent) firmware tests, Observatory maintenance activities, and further holography workflow improvements. Until recently, holography weights were made outside the archive used to track beams formed for science observations. Holography beam weights are now created within this weights archive database and stored under a new category that identifies their purpose, along with a new parameter that tracks the original beam weights under test. The image above shows total intensity beam maps for several frequency channels from the closepack36 configuration used to test database tracking and automatic processing of holography observations.
