Joint Plenary for Forecasting/Reference Design

From CMB-S4 wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search



  • What plans for instrument systematics modeling on the decadal timescale and beyond? What instrument parameters values should we use, guided by simulations & experience?
    • Complementary performance-based and ab initio forecasting
      • Write down specs for eg. bandwidth, NET, etc, justified by demonstrated performance
      • Need single reference document for all of these (wiki page?)
      • Cascade diagram progressively decomposing each element
      • For many boxes there are uncontroversial numbers that can be used as the starting point
      • On which parameters do we need to do better than S3 to achieve our goals?
