Visit of NVI group at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

This week, Matthias Schartner is visiting the VLBI group of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, USA. The main purpose of this trip to demonstrate and teach how to use VieSched++ and VieVS together to generate high-quality VLBI schedules and Monte-Carlo simulations. Additionally, several other people from USNO and Haystack (MIT) took the […]
