Project News

An executive summary of the LSST Monthly Technical Progress Report for August has been submitted to the NSF and posted on our public website:

Telescope and Site team members held a Final Design Review for the Hexapod and Rotator at Moog CSA in Mountain View, CA, earlier this week. The emphasis was on the software, control system, mechanical design and schedule; project response to the vendor is in progress.

Key Project Personnel have been asked to extend their travel to the February Joint Technical Meeting to accommodate a half-day retreat for a discussion of Workplace Culture and the implementation of trusted reporting systems including trained ombudspersons.
