Inflation Probe SAG


The goal of the Inflation Probe Science Analysis Group (IPSAG) is to provide quantitative metrics and assessments to NASA in regard to a future Inflation Probe mission. Specifically, the IPSAG will

  • Review and update mission science goals following current developments in the field (e.g., Planck, sub-orbital measurements),
  • Review and update information about and requirements on potential foreground contaminants and their removal,
  • Review and update requirements on and developments in control of systematic errors,
  • Assess necessary technology developments and prioritize areas for increased technical emphasis.

The IPSAG is open to all members of the community.

IPSAG One-Day Meeting, Aug. 15, 2012

The Physics of the Cosmos Program Analysis Group (PhysPAG) is organizing a three-day meeting between Aug. 14 and 16. As part of this gathering there will be meetings of the various Science Analysis Groups (SAGs). The Inflation Probe SAG (IPSAG) is planning a one-day meeting on Aug. 15. Conclusions of this meeting will be relayed to the PhysPAG and to NASA officials on the morning of Aug. 16. All community members are invited for the entire PhysPAG meeting.

More information about the workshop is posted at http://pcos.gsfc.nasa.gov/physpag/physpag-meeting-2012.php. Because of room size limitations the maximum number of attendees is 50. Please register as soon as possible at https://www.lpi.usra.edu/meetings/physpag2012_reg/.

Inflation Probe Technology Roadmap

The Inflation Probe Technology Roadmap Committee completed a roadmap that should guide NASA about the technologies necessary for a future Inflation Probe mission. This roadmap will inform NASA in its decisions about funding of various technology development programs over the next few years.

The roadmap has been submitted to the PCOS office in the end of October 2011. We thank the members of the IP Technology Roadmap Committee for their work on the road map:

  • Jamie Bock (Chair)
  • Todd Gaier
  • Shaul Hanany
  • Kent Irwin
  • Adrian Lee
  • Steve Meyer
  • Harvey Moseley
