The KMOS Science Verification (SV) programme consists of 20 proposals covering topics from exoplanets to distant galaxies. The first set of SV observations (SV1) took place during 24–30 June 2013. SV observations are performed in Service Mode by a dedicated team and the resulting raw data are immediately accessible to the whole community via the Science Archive Facility. The associated calibrations needed to process the data can be obtained via CalSelector during the archive query.
The 2nd SV period (SV2) is scheduled to take place over 21–27 September 2013.
