Flux calibration in TESS07 Jan 2016
TESS will take (and save) Full Frame Images at 30 minute cadence for their entire mission. However, like Kepler (and K2), the TESS pipeline will provide a differential photometry data product. i.e. the data is not flux calibrated.
The Guest-Investigator (GI) program for TESS does provide a level of funding for software projects if they are doing something value-added and unique for the community. Flux calibration should be very doable, given the FFI’s.
The question I see (and without enough knowledge of the TESS detector and hardware) is this: What are the calibration frames that are required to do this?. Put another way, what could Kepler have done to accomplish this?
