High Energy Astrophysics Approved Guest Observer Program Targets


Recent High-Energy Astrophysics AOs/NRAs for which Lists of Accepted Targets/Proposals are Now Available (in reverse chronological order)

* Approved Suzaku AO-10 Target List for observations to be carried out during the 6-month period from May 1 to October 31, 2015. Continuation of Suzaku observations beyond 2015 July is contingent on the results of the ISAS review to extend Suzaku operations. (Released Apr 21, 2015).

* NuSTAR Cycle 1 recommended category A, B, or C targets. Both Category A and B targets are guaranteed to be observed, but only Category A targets that are time-constrained are guaranteed to be observed in the Cycle 1 period from April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016. The NuSTAR project expects to be able to observe approximately 50% of Category C targets. (Released Mar 02, 2015).

* Swift Cycle 11 recommended proposals, including both proposals for funding only and observing proposals, and targets; accepted Cycle 11 ToO proposals may be triggered until March 31, 2016. (Released Jan 06, 2015).

* Approved XMM-Newton AO-14 Guest Observer Program for observations to be carried out during the period from May 2015 through May 2016. (Released Dec 9, 2014).

* Peer Review recommended Chandra X-Ray Observatory (CXO) Cycle 16 targets for observations to be carried out in a twelve month period beginning about December 2014, and including Guest Observer proposals, Multicycle, Archive and Theory proposals, Large and X-ray Visionary proposals, as well as joint proposals with HST, NuSTAR, NRAO, Suzaku and XMM-Newton (Released Jul 17, 2014).

* INTEGRAL AO-12 General Program of Observations to be carried out in the 12-month period starting on Jan 1, 2015 (Released Jul 3, 2014).

* Approved Stage-1 Fermi Cycle 7 Guest Investigator Program proposals (Released Jun 24, 2014).

* Approved Suzaku AO-9 Target List for observations proposed via either regular or Key Project proposale, and to be carried out during the 12-month period starting in April 2014. Note that during the AO-9 period observations of targets approved as joint Fermi-Suzaku and Chandra-Suzaku projects will also be carried out. (Released Feb 26, 2014).

* Swift Cycle 10 recommended proposals, including both proposals for funding only and observing proposals; accepted Cycle 10 ToO proposals may be triggered between April 1, 2014, and March 31, 2015. (Released Dec 20, 2013).

* Approved XMM-Newton AO-13 Guest Observer Program for observations to be carried out during the period from May 2014 through May 2015. (Released Dec 9, 2013).
