XMM-Newton AO-11 OTAC Results
The list of XMM-Newton proposals accepted by the AO-11 Observing Time
Allocation Committee (OTAC) and the associated proposal abstracts are
The Principal Investigators of submitted proposals have been informed
by e-mail about the results of the OTAC evaluation. The e-mail
contains the details about the second phase proposal submission for
successful observations, which must be done via the XMM-Newton Remote
Proposal Submission System (XRPS). The XRPS will be closed on the 3rd
of February 2012 at 13:00 UT.
AO-11 observations will start to be routinely performed in May 2012.
Update of the BiRD Database
The Browsing Interface for RGS Data, BiRD, has been updated. It
contains now data taken taken until 10 September 2011, that are made
available as they become public. The database includes 7400 spectra
of 3150 different objects.
BiRD is an utility to browse and examine RGS data. Spectra can be
selected through different parameters, such as date of observation,
class of object or level of exposure. BiRD also provides some basic
plotting and visualisation tools, both for the RGS spectra and
spectral images, and for the EPIC-pn images taken in parallel.
BiRD is available at the following URL:
