Exposure Record

After each instrument details record there will be n exposure records, where n is the number of exposures performed during the observation for that instrument. Following each exposure record will be an instrument specific configuration record.

  1. Identifies the record as an Exposure Record.
  2. A sequential counter of the exposures for that instrument.
  3. All comments will have the syntax ' / text'.
  4. Y/N flag indicating whether the exposure was scheduled or not. An 'N' will indicate that the exposure was not scheduled and resulted from a change request.
  5. The type of the exposure ('SCIENCE'/ 'CALIBRATION') . The field will indicate whether the exposure is a science exposure requested by the GO or a calibration exposure inserted by SOC personnel
  6. The mission planning exposure identifier
  7. The syntax is ppppppoolliieee (Section [*]).
  8. UTC time with the format yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss.
  9. The scheduled start and end time of the exposure assigned during scheduling.
  10. The start and end time of the exposure as calculated by the XSCS (see description of DATE-OBS and DATE-END in Section [*] and elsewhere).
