The aim of this project is the correct management of the different facilities owned by the IAC at the Canarias Observatories, the IAC’s own instrumentation and part of the observing time granted the IAC by other installations. There exist three types of facilities: Instruments, Telescopes and Experiments (ITE). Regarding the first type, those developed by the IAC and in operation at the present time will be considered, such AOLI, INTEGRAL, GHaFaS or LIRIS on the WHT; FastCam on NOT; TIP or TIP-II on the VTT and GREGOR; CAIN-3, FastCam, MuSCAT-2 or Wide FastCam on TCS; CAMELOT or TCP on IAC80; etc. The telescopes include those belonging to IAC -TCS, IAC80 or MONS-, the time allocated to Spain on the OGS and on the SARA network of telescopes -JKT, KP and CT- and the CAT service nights in non-IAC facilities –TNG, INT and NOT–. With regard to the experiments, there are three groups: the CMB complex, the Solar Laboratory and the small telescopes and experiments (DIMMA, SQM, TAT, etc.). The ITE over which the project has direct responsibility appear in the table below.
Having this variety of installations in mind, the main goals to achieve are three.
