Resource Cost:

Note for Multi-Cycle Proposals: The total resource cost for a multi-cycle program is estimated from the exposure-weighted values in current and future cycles. You can enter the total exposure time and determine exposure-weighted values to estimate the resource cost per cycle requested. For more detailed consideration, you may contact the Chandra Helpdesk.
