This section briefly describes other programs that may be of use when
using SCHED. The descriptions of SKEDCONV, PC-SCHED, and
UPTIME have been removed as they are no longer in use. That leaves
only the geodetic scheduling program SKED which is still the
primary tool for scheduling geodetic project.
- Originally the scheduling program for Mark III,
SKED is now the standard program for scheduling geodetic VLBI
observations. It produces SKED or drg files that are converted
to snap files by DRUDG. It also produces VLBA control files for
geodetic projects. It has sophisticated automatic scheduling
capabilities, well beyond what is available in the optimization modes
of SCHED, for geodetic projects. Contact the GSFC VLBI group for
