Astronomers Proposal Tool (APT) for HST
The Astronomer's Proposal Tool (APT) is used to write, validate and
submit proposals for the Hubble Space Telescope. (It will also be used
eventually for James Webb Space Telescope proposals.) APT is an
integrated toolset consisting of editors for filling out proposal
information, an Orbit Planner for determining feasibility in Phase II,
a Visit Planner for determining schedulability, diagnostic and
reporting tools, a Bright Object Tool for performing bright object
checks, and an integrated tool based on Aladin for viewing exposure
specifications overlaid on FITS images and querying the HST Archive.
The entry page for the tool documentation is http://www.stsci.edu/hst/proposing/apt.
