Paper Abstract

LINC-NIRVANA is a Fizeau interferometer for the LBT. The instrument combines the two 8.4 m telescopes into one image plane. The fixed geometry of the telescope and the adaptive optics of the instrument put constraints on the observation schedule. Environmental changes influences the execution of observations. We present a robust and reactive scheduling strategy to achieve high observation efficiency and scientific results with our instrument.
