VT Radar Schedules

See the web page for the Scheduling Working Group

Although the coded files are specifically for each radar, the Scheduling Working Group (SWG) files apply to all radars in the SuperDARN network.

Notes:

Note A: ARASE - This is a spacecraft working group request to support
coordinated ARASE/ERG observations of wave structures associated with field
line resonances over ground magnetometer stations located at Tixie Bay
(TIK) and Chokurdakh (CHD) in Siberia; these magnetometers are operated by
Dr. Hideaki Kawano at Kyushu University. The radars highlighted in the
square brackets for this interval should run themisscan with the following
camping beams (all other radars should run a 'normal' 1-min common time
mode e.g., normalscan, except for the interval on 1 Aug when all radars
should run themisscan):

HKW: 14
HOK: 0
KSR: 2
UNW: 3

[note A] HKW HOK KSR UNW
[note F] HKW HOK KSR UNW
[note H] HKW HOK KSR UNW

Note B: ARASE - This is a spacecraft working group request to support the
ARASE/ERG mission. The radars highlighted in the square brackets for each
interval should run interleaved_normalscan (a full scan of at least 16
beams with a non-sequential manner that interleaves the beam number, with a
scan time of 1-min). All other radars should run a 'normal' 1-min common
time mode e.g., normalscan. Footprint plots can be found at

Note C: THEMISSCAN - This is a spacecraft working group request to support
the MMS mission. All radars should run themisscan during this interval.
This mode has a camping beam which is sounded on every 6 seconds. The
scanning scheme is such that the field of view scan is interleaved with the
camping beam. The PIs/operators are welcome to adapt the mode for the
geometry for any conjunctions as they see fit (e.g., by changing the
camping beam) - footprint plots can be found at
http://www.southampton.ac.uk/~rcf2c13/footprints/ .

Note D: ST-APOG - This is a spacecraft working group request to support Van
Allen Probes (VAP - formerly RBSP) observations. The radars highlighted in
the square brackets for each interval should run rbspscan (a full scan of
at least 16 beams with an interleaved mini-scan of 3 beams, with a scan
time of 2-min). All other radars should run a 'normal' 1-min common time
mode e.g., normalscan. The PIs/operators are welcome to adapt the mode to
best fit the geometry of the conjunctions (e.g., by adapting the range
gates) - VAP footprint plots can be found at
http://www.southampton.ac.uk/~rcf2c13/VAP/ .
