12.5
The Cycle 17 calibration program continued the testing begun during SMOV. It included long-term programs to monitor the sensitivity and wavelength scale of both the NUV and FUV detectors. Midway through Cycle 17, additional calibration programs were added. Brief descriptions of these monitoring programs are presented in Table 12.2. Table 12.4 lists additional special calibration programs that were undertaken in Cycle 17. A comprehensive review of the Cycle 17 calibration program was published in COS ISR 2012-02 (Osten et al. 2012).
