[56.02] The ATST Site Survey: Instrumentation and Performance

R. R. Radick (Air Force Research Laboratory), J. W. Briggs, S. Fletcher, L. Wilkins (National Solar Observatory)

Considerable effort during the past year has gone into completing, testing, and deploying the instrumentation for the NSO's Advanced Technology Solar Telescope (ATST) site survey. Site survey work at NSO/Sac Peak has focused on developing the solar differential image motion monitor (S-DIMM), the solar scintillometer array (SHABAR), and the weather station. The first integrated system began performance & evaluation stage operations at Sac Peak in late 2001. In this presentation, we describe the present status of the ATST site survey instrumentation, its calibration and testing, and its performance.
