Paper Abstract

While HST’s planning and scheduling processes are mature, JWST’s–with a planned 2018 launch–are still in development. The STScI science, engineering, software, and operations teams are working together to get the JWST planning and scheduling systems up and running in the next few years. Here, we review the improvements made to HST’s planning and scheduling processes over the past three decades, as well as the current state of the observing program. Also, differences between the two telescopes are discussed, as well as how they affect the creation of the JWST planning and scheduling system.
