Overview of the RXTE Guest Observer Facility RXTE

The RXTE Guest Observer Facility (GOF) is located at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. The GOF is part of the Office of Guest Investigator Programs in the Astrophysics Science Division.

The primary responsibility of the RXTE GOF is to enable astronomers to make the best use of the RXTE mission. To fulfill this responsibility, the RXTE GOF staff performs such activities as supporting the RXTE proposal selection process, distributing usable data to Guest Observers, helping Guest Observers to analyze their data, and creating the mission archives.

In addition to the tasks listed above, the RXTE GOF activities include the development of software, the compilation and production of documentation for that software, and the provision of expert help. All of the RXTE GOF's activities involve close collaboration with the RXTE instrument teams.
