Action Items

  • S&DA in Science Book
    • Scope goals & requirements at each mission epoch (design, construction, deployment, observation)
    • Populate existing resource surveys
      • Software
      • Computing
    • Identify common interest groups
  • Sky Modeling
    • Initiate working group
    • Post-Planck Sky Model (PPSM): move PSM-2015 main branch to git repository
    • Investigate coupling to hydrodynamical sims for extragalactic foregrounds
  • TOD Processing (Simulation, Pre-Processing & Map-Making)
    • Schedule birds of a feather session adjacent to Berkeley meeting
  • Interfaces & Pipelines
    • Define standard data objects/formats
      • Consider computational constraints
      • Consider couplings to data acquisitions systems
      • Consider synergies with existing S3 (analysis tools) & proposed satellites (forecasting)
  • Science Book Forecasting
    • Initiate working group
    • Collect science needs to ensure inputs meet requirements
    • Define a small set of sky models spanning our hopes and fears
    • Define a small set of our favorite mission configurations to investigate
      • Decide how these are parameterized (need to go beyond white noise level, beam size & sky fraction)
    • Extend/combine existing Fisher-based forecasting tools and apply to these to the set of sky/mission pairs.
    • Humor Julian's time-domain fantasies.
