Insight-HXMT Announcement of Opportunity for AO-2 Cycle Observation Proposals

Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to invite you to respond to the 2nd “Announcement of Opportunity” by submitting proposals for observations with the Insight-HXMT satellite.

The Insight-HXMT is China's first X-ray satellite. It was launched on 15th June 2017 and is currently in service smoothly. There are three main payloads onboard Insight-HXMT, the high energy X-ray telescope (20-350 keV, 5100 cm2), the medium energy X-ray telescope (8-35 keV, 952 cm2), and the low energy X-ray telescope (1-12 keV, 384 cm2). The main scientific objectives of Insight-HXMT are: (1) to scan the Galactic Plane to find new transient sources and to monitor the known variable sources; (2) to observe X-ray binaries to study the dynamics and emission mechanism in strong gravitational or magnetic fields; and (3) to find and study gamma-ray bursts with its anti-coincidence CsI detectors. More details can be found in the white book (http://newshxmt.ihep.ac.cn/index.php/2013-03-22-08-08-48/docs/339-whitebook2, Chinese version).

 

The key milestones for this announcementsUTC-8:

Begin time: Jan. 1, 2019

Deadline: Mar. 15, 2019

Final approved programme: Mar. 31, 2019

Start of AO-2 Observations: Apr. 1, 2019

Planned end of AO-2 Observations: Mar. 31, 2020

 

Note

(1) 12 Ms observation time in total is available in this announcement, among which 60% is for core proposals and 40% is for guest proposals.

(2) The core proposals are submitted only by the core science group leaders, which should be discussed and determined in the group. Data rights are shared within the core science group members during the data protection period.

(3) The core science group members may submit the guest proposals, and follow the data policy of guest proposals.

(4) Proposals about the Galactic Plane scan, background observation and calibration observation are only open to the core science group now.

(5) Joint Proposals are open to coordinate observations with other ground telescopes or satellites. Once approved, the proposer should coordinate the observation time of different devices.

(6) “PhD Research Program”: 20% of the data in the regular observations can be protected for PhD research. The PhD advisors in the core science groups may apply for the data protection for specified periods in the proposals. If approved, the data will not be released publicly during the protection periods.  

(7) ToO data can also be applied for protection. If approved, the data protection period should be three months. Otherwise, ToO data will be released immediately.

(8) Both domestic and international scientists can submit guest proposals (in Chinese or English). It is recommended that international proposers collaborate with some domestic scientists in submitting proposals.

慧眼卫星第二轮观测提案征集公告

各位天文届同仁:

慧眼卫星第二轮观测提案的征集即将开始,特此邀请各位提交观测提案申请慧眼卫星的观测时间。

“慧眼”硬X射线调制望远镜(Insight-HXMT)卫星(以下简称慧眼卫星)是我国第一颗X射线天文卫星,已于2017615日发射升空,目前运行良好。它主要包括3种有效载荷,高能望远镜 (20-350 keV, 5100 cm2),中能望远镜 (8-35 keV, 952 cm2)和低能望远镜 (1-12 keV, 384 cm2)。慧眼卫星的主要科学目包括:(1)通过对银道面、银心和核球的大天区扫描巡天和监测,发现新的高能变源和已知高能天体的新活动; (2)通过对河内黑洞和中子星进行长期高频次监测,理解黑洞和中子星系统的活动和演化机制;通过对高流强河内黑洞和中子星进行高统计量观测,理解吸积黑洞和中子星系统的基本性质; (3)利用其扩展到200 keV-3 MeV能段的全天监视观测能力,获得新的伽马射线暴及其它爆发现象的能谱和时变观测数据,理解高能剧烈爆发天体的基本属性,研究宇宙深处大质量恒星的死亡以及中子星并合等过程中黑洞的形成。更详细的信息请参见慧眼卫星观测计划征集白皮书 (http://newshxmt.ihep.ac.cn/index.php/2013-03-22-08-08-48/docs/339-whitebook2,中文版。)
