  1. 2MAPPS Schedule Update
  2. DENIS/Tycho Meeting


  1. 2MAPPS Schedule Update -- Most of the meeting was spent updating the 2MAPPS schedule on a subsystem-by-subsystem basis. The purpose of this was to bring the progress indicators up to date for the Point Source CDR to be held March 21-22 and to adjust milestones as needed to accomodate changes that have occurred since last October at the local and project level. G. Kopan will incorporate the changes and distribute review copies of the new schedule later in the week, and then any corrections needed will be made, and an updated schedule will be distributed next week. No real surprises were uncovered, and all major milestones appear achievable, but with little margin, as anticipated because of some scheduling conflicts with other projects and recent requests for analysis to support possible design modifications in some subsystems.

  2. DENIS/Tycho Meeting -- R. Cutri reported that a meeting had been held with C. Beichman, T. Chester, D. Egret, and himself to discuss the DENIS project and the Tycho catalog. DENIS is currently underway and acquiring valuable experience. Status and formats of the Tycho catalog were also discussed.
