Remember that connections seem to be more stable if you call from a phone 
(though you don't get to see my beautiful face then). 
Also, if you get disconnected, try calling back -- that sometimes works as well...

Agenda: Today we want to (1) figure out if big things are missing and (2) start to think about resources (FTEs & Purchases).

  • WP1: Management - Ken
    • Administrative help?
  • WP2: Requirements & Analysis - ??
    • Computing infrastructure? Postdoc?
    • Lowest/Highest/Transition Frequencies
    • Will someone clean it up?
Paolo has done sensitivity measurements. 
We should show the two pictures, and say something along the lines of what Paolo has written. 
Ken will add paolo's text and figures. 
Paolo will give us a few lines about balloons. 
Alberto will still send text about the lowest frequencies. 
  • WP3: Site - Silvia/Alberto
    • Do we need two atmosphere monitors?
    • Postdoc+radiometer purchase
    • Letter from Barkats
    • Letter from South Pole
    • Letter from Chile
* Ken will talk with the HAMStead PI -- he has also done this in other place. Can't do the polarization. 
* Do we need two apparatuses?
* We don't need to do Chile/South Pole. Nor Greenland. 
  • WP4: Telescope & Optics - MarcoDP & Creidhe
    • CCATP Telescope?
    • Polarbear Style? CarloB?
      • Letter from Lee?
    • BICEP Style?
      • Letter from Kovac/Pryke?
    • Filters?
Ken will talk.
Peter is going to send a page on Filters. 
Alberto will send material on QUIJOTE telescope to Marco DP and the companies. 
MarcoDP: we need to homogenize the material. 
MarcoDP: Postdoc and licenses. 
  • WP5: Focal Plane & Detectors - Andrea+Paolo/Giovanni+Enrique
    • Split into KIDs (Grenoble), TESs (Italy), & HEMTs (Spain)
    • CEBs? Great for space -- potentially immune to cosmic rays. But never used on the ground.
      • Can we call this a sub-package of TESs. We might not be able to provide funding, however.
    • Be careful about purchases -- we need to take into account amortiziement. to
    • We need to weight the workpackages -- they are not all equal in funding.
    • Some of the money will be for software -- we probably don't need cryocooler work.
  • WP6: System Engineering & Calibration - MarcoB
    • We need to purchase calibrators and test.
    • Combine with WP7
  • WP7: System Choices
    • Combine with WP6?
  • WP8: Gouvernance - Stavros
    • Administrator?
    • Letters from APPEC & AstroNet?
  • Outreach: Manolis Plionis
    • Call this a "sub" workpackage of the Management package.
    • What can be done for less?
  • Deliverables?
    • Everything is public?
  • What's missing?
  • FTE Estimates
  • Partners
    • UK "PI"? Anthony will speak with Stafford Withington & Peter Hargrave.
    • German Institutes
  • Resources:
    • Money
    • Postdocs
    • We need to ask partner institutes to send descriptions of their work.
