Transforming NOAO - A Status Report
Dave Silva



NOAO is undergoing a period of significant transformation, driven by new programmatic and financial directives from NSF as well as new scientific priorities within the US community. As always, it remains a high level priority for NOAO to deliver capabilities and services to enable a broad range of high impact research by the US community. Key components of the transformed NOAO program include open access to world-class imagers and spectrometers on 4-m and 8-m class telescopes as well as open access to rich, mega-object datasets. This presentation will provide an overview of the NOAO program today and where we are going in the next few years.
