Antenna Configurations Models in CASA

From CASA Guides
Jump to: navigation, search

The following configuration files are available for use with simulations in CASA. These configuration files are distributed with the CASA release. Also, you can locate the directory with the configurations in your CASA distributions and then list the configuration files, like so:

CASA <49>: print os.getenv('CASAPATH').split(' ')[0] + '/data/alma/simmos/'
/home/casa/packages/RHEL6/release/casa-release-4.3.1-el6/data/alma/simmos/
CASA <50>: ls /home/casa/packages/RHEL6/release/casa-release-4.3.1-el6/data/alma/simmos/
