AMBER internal memos
Friday 16 September 2005, by Fabien Malbet


You will find below the internal documents of the AMBER project. They have been numbered following the scheme AMB-XXX-xxx, where XXX is the acronym of the subsystem (see below) and xxx is the historical index number.

The subsystem acronyms are the following ones:
- SGR: Science group, activities from the science group
- IGR: Interferometry Group, all system analysis
- OPM: Optomechanics
- SPG: Spectrograph, previously SPE
- DET: Detector
- ACOS, OSM, ICM: Software; Observing Sofware Module and Instrument Control Module recalled later the Amber Control and Observation Support
- INT, AIT: Integration recalled Assembly, Integration and Tests
- COM: Commissioning
- ATF: AMBER Task Force
- Other memos

The list of documents are ordered below by subsystems.
