February 15, 2005 Astro-E2 Users' Group Meeting 2 US Timeline ROSS-2004 release: January 2004 International AO-1 release: May 19, 2004 Also release of Technical Appendix

NOI deadline: June 16, 2004 Proposal deadline: August 18, 2004 US Proposal Review: October 19-21, 2004 International Merging: December 7, 2004 February 15, 2005 Astro-E2 Users' Group Meeting 3 Notices of Intent NOIs are not compulsory 31 NOIs received A small fraction (~20%) of total proposals Only ~40% of NOIs directly correspond to

submitted proposals As currently strctured, they serve no useful purposes in planning the review February 15, 2005 Astro-E2 Users' Group Meeting 4 Proposal Submission Submission was all-electronic: Cover page into Sysefus at NPRS Cover page, general form, and target form into RPS at GSFC

160 proposals received, with relatively few confusion over the duality of the proposal submission system Proposals were tracked using two different numbers throughout February 15, 2005 Astro-E2 Users' Group Meeting 5 Review Organization Four panels in two broad (Galactic and extragalactic) subject areas, 6/7 reviewers per panel Encountered difficulties recruiting recruiting

reviewers (review fatigue?) Additional delays introduced in coordinating logistics with NPRS - reviewer packages mailed late Despite this, reviewers did an excellent job! February 15, 2005 Astro-E2 Users' Group Meeting 6 Some Numbers 160 proposals requested 19.8 Msec of time: oversubscription factor of 4.3 Of which 17.5 Msec was non-overlapping (3.8)

Average request was 124 ksec/proposal US review allocated 32.5% (US)+5% (JUS)=37.5% x 1.4 Target divided into three priority levels: 50%A, 40%B, and 50%C February 15, 2005 Astro-E2 Users' Group Meeting 7 TC and TOO Observations Time Critical (TC) observations are accepted only at priority A TOO proposals of unpredictable events in specific objects are allowed, and accepted

only at priority A There will be a mechanism for non-NRA TOOs of truly unpredictable events - details TBD February 15, 2005 Astro-E2 Users' Group Meeting 8 International Merging There were considerable number of target overlaps between US, Japan and Europe If all were merged, it would have amounted to ~10% of total time Actually allocated ~7.5% for merged

observations Merging committee treated the pre-set rules as guidelines and modified them to fit the situation February 15, 2005 Astro-E2 Users' Group Meeting 9 Review Results Internationally agreed target list was posted on the Web on Dec 15, 2004 Individual letters to US PIs were sent out on Jan 22, 2005

Of the 160 proposals submitted to the US, 1 had accepted TOO time 44 had at least one A or B target 22 had only C target February 15, 2005 Astro-E2 Users' Group Meeting 10 Stage 2 (Budget) Proposal US PIs as well as US co-Is on Japan or ESA proposals will be invited to submit a stage 2 proposal Schedule TBD (with the launch delay, there is no hurry) but probably in April

February 15, 2005 Astro-E2 Users' Group Meeting 11 Cycle 2 Plan For an assumed late May, 2005, launch, Cycle 1 observations will be complete in late December, 2006 Backtracking from this, the proposal deadline is likely to be in August 2006 It will likely be included in ROSES-2006 announcement February 15, 2005
