Calibration

Calibration programs monitor STIS performance and provide information needed to calibrate supported observing modes. Each cycle, a set of calibration programs is assembled and approved by the Director. The following is a table of all the STIS calibration plans.

Calibration Per Cycle

The final calibration plans describe briefly the purpose, accuracies, and resources for all calibration programs in a given cycle. The results and status of the calibration programs at the end of each cycle are documented in the Close-out Reports.
