p2 - Help

In the following we provide some key definitions which will help the users to familiarize with the ESO Phase 2 basic concepts.

We recommend our users to refer to the instrument user’s manuals or template manuals for an extensive description of the templates of a specific VLT instrument. All manuals available for downloads from the ESO web pages

Before starting to use p2 to design your Phase 2 material please have a look at the new features implemented and benefits introduced with p2 with respect to P2PP3.

p2 is implemented using Google’s angular framework [https://angular.io]. We recommend to run p2 with Google Chrome >= version 52, Firefox >= version 48, Safari >= version 9, MacOS >= version 10.9 (Mavericks), Fedora Linux >= version 24.

Please see the 2 minutes video showing the basic concept of OB preparation and notification report.
