This is the top left panel of the PIT, when "Time Requests" is selected from the "Overview / Time Requests / Scheduling / Submit" options shown below the panel. A video tutorial is also available for this section.
Proposal Class: Please select from one of the four options in the drop down menu. Indicate if your proposal is to be considered as a
queue program at Gemini, a
classical program at Gemini, an
exchange program at Subaru or Keck, or "Other" which includes
Director's Time, Science Verification, Demo Science, and
Queue proposals: If your program is a queue program, the next line will become "Consider for Band 3?". If your program is
suitable for Band 3 then select "Yes" from the drop down menu, and click on the box to the right to enter both the full and minimum time allocation that is useful for you to get science in Band 3. Below the Band 3 entry, indicate if your program is a
Target of Opportunity (ToO) program, and if it is, then if it is a Standard or Rapid ToO.
Other Proposals: If your proposal is a
Director's Time, Science Verification, Demo Science, or
Poor Weather program, select the appropriate type from the drop down menu below the Proposal Class entry.
Request Type: Indicate, using this drop down menu, whether you are asking for
Gemini partner time, or whether the PI is a Keck or Subaru community astronomer.
Gemini partner request: Enter the amount of time requested from the appropriate partner(s). Double click on the partner to enter the information. Give the total amount of time, as well as the minimum amount of time, requested from this partner. This is the classical or Band 1/2 time request; the Band 3 time is entered via the box to the right of the "Consider for Band 3?" entry. Indicate the investigator that is the Lead investigator for each partner.
The total and minimum times requested for classical or Band 1/2, and for Band 3, are summarized in the bottom line of the window. Proposal checks compare the requested times with the total times defined in the observations sections and compare regular and minimum times. Discrepancies are noted in the Problems section at the bottom of the main window.
