Suzaku Guest Observer Facility

Suzaku Cycle 5 Closed

November 23, 2008

Suzaku Cycle 5 (Stage 1) is now closed.

According to our counts (subject to on-going verification), we have received 88 valid submissions to NASA requesting 19.8 Msec of observations. Of these, five were multi-year Key Project proposals. The remaining single-year (Long Program and Regular) proposals represent an oversubscription of 3.45 for the non-Key Project time available to the US community.

The oversubscription factor for non-Key Project time is lower than in AO-4 (4.6), primarily because more projects were submitted as Key Project proposals. With 9 additional proposals requesting more than 300 ksec of time ("Long Program" proposals), the US observing programm for Suzaku will emphasize large projects more than other X-ray observatories.

Following the US review and the international merging meeting, we anticipate the accepted target list will be published during March, 2010.

If you are a US-based researcher who is interested in participating in the US peer review of Suzaku observing proposals, please contact us using the feedback form link below.
