This document describes the process used to generate a new bad pixel table for the STIS NUV MAMA that includes the vignetted corners. This bad pixel table differs from previous tables as it defines bad pixels by optical element in the new OPT_ELEM column.

We describe a segmented line model for parameterizing the timedependent
sensitivity and present a method for automatically determining the
number of line segments needed to fit the data. We also present a Python script to
perform this fit.

This TIR summarizes most of the modications applied to the existing python code:
STISCCDSpectroscopyFlat.py (Niemi 2010). The document also summarizes the results
obtained from the analysis of past data and the recommendations for the future STIS CCD at monitoring programs.

We analyze the STIS NUV MAMA flats collected during cycles 11, 17 and 19. The data collected within each cycles are normalized in a p-flat following two different methods. The two methods are compared and discussed. The evolution of the p-flat with time is presented, too, confirming the trend already reported by Brown et al. (2002).
