AO-19 Observations Approved
22 June 2021
INTEGRAL AO-19 General Programme, as recommended by the Time
Allocation Committee (TAC) and approved by ESA's Director of Science
(Prof. Günther Hasinger), has been released and
the observers have been informed.
AO-19 Call for Observing Proposals is Open
1 March 2021
INTEGRAL AO-19 solicits proposals for observations to be carried out from
January 2022 for a period of 12 months. Proposers from all over the world
are welcome to participate. All proposals will be
subject to an independent peer review by the INTEGRAL Time Allocation Committee (TAC).
The deadline for proposal submission is Friday 9 April 2021, 14:00 CEST.

Change in Russian Federation data rights
13 January 2016
Last year, the Russian Advisory Committee
(RAC) for INTEGRAL agreed with proposed changes to the data rights
policy with regard to Russian Federation proposals in AO-13. Data or
science rights to the targets or science in the field of view (FOV) of
the instruments proposed by the PIs from the Russian Federation and
accepted by the TAC will be allocated to these PIs with the usual
1-year proprietary period. However, the rest of the field will be made
public to the community at-large through the consolidated data
programme, i.e., having a policy similar to that for non-Russian
Federation proposals. Russian PIs still have exceptional access to the
near-real time data of their observations. This policy change is in
effect from January 1. Note that the guaranteed return to the Russian
science community from the open time programme stays 25%.
schedules and lists
of approved targets for AO-1 to AO-16 are
available from ESA's INTEGRAL web site. The AO-1 through AO-16 observing
targets are also listed in the INTEGRAL Observing Program Catalog (INTEGRALAO)
in the HEASARC INTEGRAL archive. It is searchable using either Browse or Xamin.
