The objective of this tool is the global optimisation of the scientific program by:

    the definition of an optimal selection of observation fields and targets taking into account
      simultaneously, seismo and exoplanet criteria,
      satellite (flight domain) and instrument (windowing) constraints,
      eventually specific targets of additional programs.
    the pre-launch preparation of observation program,
    the update of the observation schedulling during the mission.

The main functionalities (some of them being restricted) are:

    the choice of the CCD position and orientation for each run, allowing to calculate the line of sight and the associated quaternion for the satellite attitude maneuvers,
    the selection of targets on seismology and exoplanet CCDs,
    the verification of feasibility, in terms of windowing and piloting (identification of star couples usable for ecartometry),
    the computation of the dates to start and stop a run (Sun position),
    the construction of a global observation planning, thanks to criteria on depointing (constraints of straylight from Earth and Moon) and roll angle (thermal constraints relative to the focal unit radiator).

The main users are:

    the Co-Is and Associated scientists who prepare the observation proposals,
    the project group which analyse their feasibility and prepare satellite commands,
    the work groups' leaders and the scientific Committee which select the proposals and validate the global program.
