Description

Find and FRB in a DES Field.

Current assumptions

We would like 1 MHz continuum data on this field to test for the presence of a continuum source. Unlike most CRAFT filler observing, this requires the correlator to be running.

Proposal document (if existent): 

None specifically

Telescope configuration

Footprint: closepack36, pitch=0.9, rotation=45

Frequency range: 1272.5 MHz

Interleaving mode:None

The target is in the DES fields.

Given it's location north of the equator we avoid unwraping mid observation by setting the pol-axis as shown.

common.target.src1.field_name = G180-50
common.target.src1.field_direction = [3:02:08.6956, -2:11:42.0221, J2000]
common.target.src1.pol_axis = [pa_fixed, 170]
common.target.src1.duration = 1800

Standard CRAFT options for observing are

craft.target.src%d.scan_intent = FRB_INCSUM_RT
craft.target.src%d.int_time = 2047
craft.target.src%d.record_mode = NULL
craft.target.src%d.mode = 2

Processing considerations

Full field continuum images are required.

Additional details / future requests

We'd like to continue with filler blocks where possible.
