ASTROEAO - Astro-E Accepted Targets


Overview

The ASTROEAO database contains the official observing program for the ASTRO-E mission. ASTRO-E is a joint Japan-US project, with the launch scheduled for late January or February, 2000. Currently, only targets approved by the Science Working Group (hardware and software teams, and a few additional science advisors) are known. For more details of the mission, please see the web pages of the ASTRO-E Guest Observer Facility (http://astroe.gsfc.nasa.gov/).

Unique number assigned each observation.

Name
Source designation.

Exposure
The accepted exposure time in ksec.

Pno
Proposal Number with which the source is associated; this is left blank for SWG targets.

Country
The country of the Principal Investigator's institution.

Constraint_flag
A flag, if available, which indicates whether (Y) or not (N) there is a time-critical nature to the observation.

Too_flags
A flag, if available, which indicates whether (Y) or not (N) this is a target of opportunity.

Xrs_filter
The XRS science filter to be used in the observation (open, ND05, ND10, ND25, BE100, or BE300).

Remarks
Remarks about the observation in human-readable form, such as constraints, TOO trigger, and use of filter.

Class
