JWST Proposal Tools

  • Astronomer’s Proposal Tool (APT): a stand-alone GUI software package used for designing, validating, and submitting JWST observing proposals
  • JWST Target Visibility Tools: tools to help proposers evaluate the visibility of both stationary and moving targets for observations with JWST instruments
  • Exposure Time Calculator (ETC): a dedicated online tool for proposal planning that performs detailed signal-to-noise calculations for all JWST instruments and observing modes
  • MIRISim: similar to the ETC, this software package generates end-to-end simulations of imaging and spectroscopic observations using the JWST Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI)
