INTEGRAL Call for observing proposals is open

Date: 23-02-2017

The European Space Agency (ESA) has released the 15th Announcement of Opportunity (AO-15) for observing proposals with INTEGRAL, the International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory. The deadline for proposal submission is Friday, 31 March 2017, 14:00 CEST.

ESA's INTErnational Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory is detecting some of the most energetic radiation that comes from space. It is the most sensitive gamma-ray observatory ever launched. INTEGRAL is an ESA mission in cooperation with Russia and the United States.

The announcement solicits proposals for observations to be carried out from January 2018 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). 


INTEGRAL (The International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory) is the second medium-sized mission of ESA's Horizon 2000 Science Programme. INTEGRAL is dedicated to the fine spectroscopy (E/deltaE = 500) and fine imaging (angular resolution: 12 arcmin FWHM) of celestial gamma-ray sources in the energy range 15 keV to 10 MeV with concurrent source monitoring in the X-ray (3-35 keV) and optical (V-band, 550 nm) energy ranges.
