Targets of Opportunity (TOOs)RXTE Guest Observer Facility - RXTE Frequently Asked Questions
Two Types of TOO
There are two types of TOO, both of which will be handled as routinely as possible:
Please note that this classification also applies if you wish to observe someone else's accepted NRA target as a TOO.
In order to submit an RFO (request for observation) of either type of TOO, please use ARK/RPS. In order to access the RXTE TOO request web form, you must first create an ARK account and/or join the XTETOO group. Please refer to the ARK/RPS instructions for the XTETOO group for the step-by-step details.
The decision whether to observe a TOO is made by the Project Scientist.
If you have a question about RXTE, please send email to one of our help desks.
