VIRUS Throughput Estimates per Resolution Element
It is important for the PI to realize that due to the design of the
HET the effective collecting area changes over a trajectory. Near the
end of a trajectory the HET has half the collecting area that it has near
the middle. As such two medium length visits centered
on middle of a track could be more valuable than a single long visit.
All throughput estimates are based upon center of track efficiency.
