Array parameters September 2011 (16/08-26/10)

SABOCA was in use starting in the middle of the MPI time, on 16th of August. It was then used throughout all partner institutes time blocks, and finally warmed up during technical time at the end of October. It will be out of business until the beginning of science time in 2012.
