Paper Abstract

We present the current status and development plans for ASPRO, a software to prepare observations with an optical interferometer. ASPRO enables the user to find which configurations of the interferometer are the most adapted to study the scientific object, which objects could be used to calibrate the interferometric measurements on the scientific object and what accuracy could be expected on the measurements. ASPRO is developed by the Jean-Marie Mariotti Center for Expertise in Interferometry to help astronomers optimize the use of the facility to which they submit an observing proposal -in particular ESO's VLTI- and optimize its scientific return.
