Title: TMT Project Status


1
TMT Project Status
  • C. Steidel, for the TMT Project
  • GSMT SWG Meeting
  • Los Angeles
  • October 20, 2005

2
Contents
  • Current Design Baseline
  • Instruments and adaptive optics systems
  • Capabilities and their connection to the GSMT-SWG
    report
  • Operations models and US community access
  • Schedule

3
The TMT Partnership
  • TMT follows the NAS Decadal Survey recommendation
    that a public-private partnership is the best way
    to build operate a US-led 30-m telescope
  • Current partners (for Design and Development
    Phase) are
  • University of California
  • Caltech
  • ACURA (Canada)
  • AURA (NSF)
  • Although partners are currently equal, ultimate
    shares (e.g. of observing time) will be based on
    contributions to capital operations.

4
TMT Precursor Studies
  • TMT follows from a careful consideration of
    three, independently-conceived
    independently-reviewed, point designs
    representing ?6M total effort
  • CELT (UCCaltech)
  • VLOT (Canada)
  • GSMT (NOAO/Gemini)
  • Broad exploration of technical options
  • Positive reviews by outside reviewers
  • TMT consolidates the best aspects of these
    designs
  • Single reference design now established by the
    Project

5
TMT Overall Structure
  • TMT governance established in June 2003
  • Agreements between the partners
  • Formation of Science Advisory Committee
  • equal membership/representation from each of the
    4 partners
  • Formation of Board of Directors
  • Appointment of Project Manager, Gary Sanders (Apr
    2004)
  • Development Phases
  • Design Development Phase (2004-2008)
  • 35M secured from GB Moore Foundation
    (Caltech/UC)
  • 17.5M from each of Canada and AURA (NSF)
  • Construction phase (2009 2014)

Summit/Support Facilities Status
  • Facilities requirements review August 9, 2005
  • Facilities Requirements and site dependence
    discussed extensively at Aspen (Sep 2005) TMT
    Week meeting
  • The arrangement of summit and support facilities
    is strongly dependent on sites
  • Goal is to transition to Architect/Engineer
    studies this year
  • Operations strategy impacts requirements
  • Site Selection requirements document provides
    initial discussion
  • Observatory Scientist David Silva will lead study
    of this area

47
Operations Development
  • Operations and development
  • Assume 40M/yr for operations
  • Assume 20M/yr for development
  • Possible sources of operational funds (40M/yr)
  • UCCaltech 25, Canada 25, NSF 50
  • Operations style
  • We will support traditional astronomer-led
    observing
  • We will support queue or service observing
  • Mix will be set by maximizing scientific
    productivity
  • Data will be archived and available to all after
    proprietary period
  • Purpose of Development funds
  • New instruments
  • Instrument upgrades
  • AO upgrades and new AO capabilities
  • Facility upgrades including guiders, etc

48
Observing Time
  • If we use current projected partner
    contributions, we might expect observing time to
    be distributed very roughly as
  • Private 25-50
  • US Community through AURA 50-25
  • Canada 25
  • Actual distribution will depend on financial
    contributions of the partners.

49
Operations Planning
  • Lead role taken by Observatory Scientist
  • David Silva (ESO/VLT) is joining TMT to assume
    this role
  • Project Scientist and SAC will play a major role
  • Operations Advisory Group will be formed as soon
    as the Observatory Scientist is on board
  • Group will represent the 4 partners and the
    operational expertise of Keck, Gemini and VLT
  • Already can see operational questions arising in
    all design discussions
