This memo describes the equations used in the IRAM-30m EMIR time/sensitivity estimator available in the GILDAS/ASTRO program. A large part of the memo aims at deriving sensitivity estimate for the case of On-The-Fly observations, which is not clearly documented elsewhere (to our knowledge). Numerical values of the different parameters used in the time/sensitivity estimator are grouped in appendix A.
