SNAP Reviews & Milestones What are our current R&D efforts? Mission Development & Optimization Optical performance trades Attitude Control System issues Shutter technology Bandpass filter technology Calibration plan IFU/Spectrometer technology Si CCD’s HgCdTe’s Detector Electronics SNAP Introduction:  Supernova data shows an acceleration of the expansion, implying that the universe is dominated by a new Dark Energy! Remarkable agreement between Supernovae & recent CMB. SNAP Introduction Credit STScI Mission Design:  SNAP a simple dedicated experiment to study the dark energy Dedicated instrument, essentially no moving parts Telescope: 2 meter aperture, diffraction limited beyond 1 micron Photometry: with 1deg FOV half-billion pixel mosaic camera, high-resistivity, rad-tolerant p-type CCDs and HgCdTe arrays. (0.4-1.7 mm) Integral field optical and IR spectroscopy: 0.4-1.7 mm, 2”x2” FOV Mission Design Primary Science Mission Includes…:  Primary Science Mission Includes… SNAP Motivation:  SNAP Motivation Precision cosmology to distinguish models There are a LOT of models Dark energy is not understood Early universe was dominated by gravitation, hence deceleration Only more recently could dark energy have become dominant Need an accurate redshift-magnitude diagram must extend a large range of redshifts small z: recent epoch with acceleration z>1.5 to probe possible early deceleration epoch must minimize systematics < few percent must minimize statistics < few percent Standard Candles:  Standard Candles Cosmic accelerometer: need lookback time and expansion for each of thousands of events distributed throughout universe. Standard candle redshift-magnitude diagram gives both: expansion from redshift lookback time from apparent magnitude Type Ia supernovae are the best candles known WD receives mass from binary companion SN occurs when WD mass exceeds Chandrasekhar limit This limit is set by electron degeneracy pressure Empirically, Ia’s can be standardized to < 0.2 magnitudes therefore, tens to hundreds/bin give few percent precision Systematics are just as important as statistics Light curves are important to distinguish variants, trends... Spectroscopy is important to distinguish variants, trends... How to achieve these goals?:  How to achieve these goals? Huge amounts of uniformly-calibrated observing time => space Need guaranteed reobservation each SN for light curve => space Need to probe into the NIR, out to ~1.7 microns => space Need to go faint => space detect at 29th AB magnitude at 1 micron spectrum & precision photometry at 25th magnitude Spaceborne telescope and instrument complement approx 2 meter aperture, wide field optics large format imager/photometer, ~1 deg FOV , 9 bands repeatedly scans a survey region, ~10 sq deg multiplex advantage ~half billion pixels processes entire field regularly, every few days low dispersion spectrometer observe each SN at peak for classification Simulated SNAP data:  Simulated SNAP data From Science Goals to Project Design:  From Science Goals to Project Design Science Measure M and  Measure w and w (z) Data Set Requirements Discoveries 3.8 mag before max Spectroscopy with S/N=10 at 15 Å bins Near-IR spectroscopy to 1.7 m Statistical Requirements Sufficient (~2000) numbers of SNe Ia …distributed in redshift …out to z < 1.7 Systematics Requirements Identified and proposed systematics: Measurements to eliminate / bound each one to +/–0.02 mag Satellite / Instrumentation Requirements ~2-meter mirror Derived requirements: 1-square degree imager • High Earth orbit Spectrograph • High bandwidth (0.4 m to 1.7 m) • • • • • • Other Benefits:  Other Benefits SNAP main survey will be 6300 x larger (and somewhat deeper) than the HST ACS survey SNAP will provide 9-band colors of every object within its survey region SNAP has time resolution revisit everything every few days span >2 years Complementary to NGST: target selection for rare objects Could survey 3000 sq deg in a year to I=29 or J=28 AB mag SNAP Reviews/Studies/Milestones:  SNAP Reviews/Studies/Milestones Mar 2000 SAGENAP: urged DoE to begin supporting SNAP R&D Sep 2000 NASA Structure and Evolution of the Universe (SEU) Dec 2000 NAS/NRC Committee on Astronomy and Astrophysics Jan 2001 DOE-HEP Reviewed SNAP R&D Program Mar 2001 DOE HEPAP Reviewed SNAP science goals Jun 2001 NASA/GSFC Integrated Mission Design Center July 2001 NAS/NRC Committee on Physics of the Universe July 2001 Snowmass 2001 Workshop: “Resource Book on Dark Energy” Nov 2001 CNES (France Space Agency) IN2P3, U.Marseille Dec 2001 NASA/SEU Strategic Planning Panel Dec 2001 NASA/GSFC Instrument Synthesis & Analysis Lab Jan 2002 AAS Washington: 23 papers Dark Energy & SNAP Mar 2002 SAGENAP: urged continuing support Apr 2002 NAS/NRC CPU (Turner) Report Published NOW ------------------------------------------------------------ July 2002 DOE/SC-CMSD R&D (Lehman) Sept 2002 NASA/SEU Releases Roadmap Oct 2002 CNES Review R&D Reviews:  R&D Reviews Jan 2001 DoE Science and R&D Review: “SNAP will have a unique ability to measure the variation in the equation of state of the universe.” Look at greatly increasing the near-infrared capabilities Is the proposed IR spectrograph throughput adequate? Look at a descoped instrument complement: Can the spectroscopy be done by ground-based facilities? Develop a calibration strategy and plan.

Helped us identify shutter mechanisms and test plans Generally good marks; urged us to develop and maintain a stray light model Current Mission Concept:  Current Mission Concept 2.5 x 25 Re orbit, Delta III/IV or Atlas, KSC launch 29 deg inclination, 3 day period, perigee near Berkeley Science operations beyond 9 Re for lowest background Data downlink below 9 Re for best link margins Single ground station can handle all comm Survey region near north ecliptic pole least zodiacal light for best NIR sensitivity One side of vehicle is always within 45deg of sunward Opposite side always in shadow, passive cooling radiator Maneuvering around sun line for other targets (cal, SEP, ...) Onboard data storage for each orbit’s data no onboard processing, but 2:1 Rice compression of raw images 10 Mbit/sec average data generation rate 2.5 Tbit/orbit data recorder needed 6 hours AOS per orbit, Berkeley ground station 150 Mbit/sec actual downlink, Ka band Nominal 3 year mission, option to extend Current Observation Concept:  Current Observation Concept Imager Step the entire focal plane through our dedicated observation field. Fixed length exposures determined by a shutter, typically 200 sec Multiple exposures per filter. To implement dithering pattern. To eliminate cosmic ray hits. NIR filters have twice the area of visible filters; this combined with time dilation achieves desired S/N in CCDs and HgCdTe. All stars see all filters (modulo field edge effects). Field revisited every orbit. SNe will be followed throughout entire mission. Square-symmetric detector array layout: 90 deg roll each 90 days. Spectrograph SNe candidates are scheduled for spectrographic measurement near peak luminosity. Light curve and color analysis done on ground to identify Type Ia and roughly determine z. Note peak luminosity is 14 days to 40 days after discovery for z = 0 and 1.7 respectively.
