1 20% degradation = no more than 20% loss of LAT science return
2 Uplink telemetry rate for at least 80% of time outside of SAA
3 Response time for the MOC to uplink a spacecraft repointing after the decision is made to respond to a Target of Opportunity (TOO).
4 Time for 70 degree slew.
5 Time from spacecraft receipt of GRB notification from GBM or LAT to delivery to the Gamma-ray Coordinates Network (GCN) computer for 95% of all GRBs detected by the GBM or LAT.
6 1 sigma radius
7 Pointing of axis normal to LAT to within 30 degrees of source. (No science constraints on roll axis.)
8 Sky coverage exposure uniformity integrating for 7 days, not including SAA effects.
9 Relative to Universal Time, 1 sigma r.m.s.
10 Fraction of time taken with data return, not including SAA effects.
11 Fraction of data taken by the instruments but not delivered to the IOC. Not including SAA data loss. Not including instrument deadtime.
