Peer-reviewed TOOs are TOO proposals that were submitted and accepted
as a result of the Chandra Call for Proposals (CfP). Since their
scientific objectives have already been approved, we require only
confirmation of a few details and a brief description of how the trigger
criteria has been met. Please use the form below to identify the TOO
you wish to trigger.
Unanticipated TOOs are charged to Director's Discretionary Time.
These will not have not been previously accepted through the Chandra Call
for Proposals. For the unanticipated TOOs, a compelling scientific case
must be made for inserting them into the mission timeline.
To submit an RfO (Request for Observation) of this type, please
see the instructions for Director's Discretionary Time.
