Paper Abstract

We present ASPRO-VLTI, the newly developed JMMC software that will allow astronomers to prepare observations with both first-generation VLTI instruments, AMBER and MIDI. This software has been specifically designed to hide as much as possible instrument complexity and should permit to focus primarily on the science objectives. The targeted users are all astronomers interested in observing with VLTI but with limited interferometric background. It should be particularly well suited for the preparation of ESO-VLTI Phase I proposals. The user can define its target model, choose observational parameters and check if the observations will match its scientific goals. Output quantities and plots can be used for observation proposals.
