Amanda Bauer, Bob Blum, Phil Marshall: Rubin Observatory Operations Update PCW 2020
In this pre-recorded plenary the Operations team will update the community on preparations for Survey Operations including serving data during pre-operations (simulated data, commissioning and science verification data), as well as an overview on data facilities and data rights. Attendees will also be updated on international In-kind partnerships, the Rubin-Euclid Derived Data Products Working Group and the Survey Cadence Optimization Committee. Finally, the team will discuss its commitment to improving Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion within the Rubin enterprise, providing information on initial actions that can be built into operations plan, including ways in which Rubin will support underserved groups in research.
Financial support for LSST comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded LSST Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA). The DOE-funded effort to build the LSST camera is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future.
NSF and DOE will continue to support LSST in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
