KI V2 Sensitivity and Observing parameters

This page contains KI sensitivity and instrument details for proposal and observation planning for V2 observations. In the V2 mode the main data product is the normalized visibility amplitude squared for a given source. Integrations on the target source and calibrators are interleaved in time, where each integration comprises fringe tracking data and all necessary calibrations. See the data overview for more details on the data.

Updates for 2011A call for proposals:

Sensitivity numbers updated: August 1, 2010

The sensitivity values below are based on past interferometer performance in good weather. The interferometer performance degrades substantially in poor seeing.
