Design Reference Documents
The following two design documents contain a wealth of information on the instrument, its capabilities and modes.
- Operational Concepts Definition Document - Science overview, drivers and requirements, observing scenarios
- Functional & Performance Requirements Document - performance requirements at the top level and broken down by subsystem
GPI Data Reduction
Our team published a series of ten papers at the 2014 SPIE Astronomical Telescopes & Instrumentation meeting discussing in detail our understanding of GPI data and its analysis as of six months after first light. Readers are strongly encouraged to take a look!
