Tracker Meeting, 26 March 2012

Agenda: minutes
  1. Actions:
    • CMacW: Valve on cryostat needs replacing after accident.
    • ES, AD: Split out unpacking/calibration of data in a separate mapper.
    • ML, ES, OL, AD, KL: Urgent to add description of the geometry and complete the coordinate system description to the tracker s/w write up.
    • CMacW: to inquire about standard monitoring of fire in racks.
    • KL: Prepare for review of schedules.
    • CMacW, PR: list all items that may be affected adversely by the magnetic field.
    • ES: Provide space-point algebra for documentation.
    • CMacW: Pursue ISIS for buffered signal and TOF1 rewiring in MICO.
    • ES: Send updated tracks data to A. Belozertseva.
    • MR: Control system modified for single station test.i
