Apps Status Report for November 15, 2009

Guide on Reporting Percentage Completed:

For software development tasks,

  • use 0% if the solution is still being designed;
  • use 25% if the solution's design is completed;
  • use 50% if the solution is implemented and tested within the Ticket branch;
  • use 75% if the implementation review is complete, the Ticket branch has been merged onto the Trunk branch, and the Ticket is closed.
  • use 100% if the affected Trunk packages are tagged and released.

For other tasks, still use these increments, but apply their meaning as best as possible.

Note: Please place an asterisk (*) after the percent if you updated this value in this report.

APP10525%PSF for deep detection I have converted most of my DES version of the code to the required LSST style. I will be trying to keep to two pieces of code as much in sync as possible so that any bugs we find in the testing of the DES code can be easily ported over to the LSST version as well. (And vice versa.)

Other Activities

Developed initial hardware requirement estimates for DayMOPS using OOrb rather than JPL.

Worked with Jacek and Lynne Jones to help estimate DayMOPS database requirements.

Worked closely with Mikael Granvik to build, test and validate f2py-based wrappers to OOrb based on our needs. These will hopefully replace or augment existing wrappers to OOrb, which have been found to cause occasional mysterious memory errors.

Ran a series of benchmarks on various configurations of nightly ephemeris stored in a database.

Used a sample of PS-MOPS asteroid catalog to find amount of error generated by the nightly linear approximation of NEO paths compared with hourly true ephemeris.

Using knowledge from above database experiments, discussed and planned (with Lynne Jones and Simon Krughoff) a new asteroid ephemeris generation utility to be used for generating MOPS input catalogs and asteroid locations for the ImSim catalogs. Unlike PanSTARRS tools, ours will keep nightly ephemeris in a database from simulation to simulation, avoiding the need to calculate new ephemerides. This code is planned to serve as the basis for a slightly cleaner, OOrb-based NightMOPS as well.
