NICER GO – Cycle 5 Revised Text and Phase-1 Due Date Delay

D.11 NICER General Observer (GO) – Cycle 5 solicits proposals for observations with the Neutron Star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER), an X-ray experiment on the International Space Station (ISS) dedicated to high-resolution timing and spectroscopy of neutron stars and other rapidly variable X-ray sources in the 0.2–12 keV band. All areas of astrophysics are solicited, with at least 7.5 Ms of available time and a limited amount of funding available in Cycle 5. Moreover, NICER Cycle 5 proposers may request up to 400 ks of time with NuSTAR, up to 200 ks with Swift, or up to 300 2-minute and 50 20-sec cadence windows for TESS.

ROSES-2022 Amendment 21 delays the Phase-1 due date and releases revised text for NICER GO – Cycle 5. The due date for Phase-1 proposals has been delayed to 4:30p/Eastern/3:30p Central/2:30p Mountain/1:30p Pacific on 14 September 2022, submitted via ARK/RPS. New text has been added to Sections 1.1, 1.3.3, and 2.3, regarding joint observing programs with NuSTAR, Swift, and the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS).

Please direct programmatic questions concerning this program element to Roopesh Ojha, at Roopesh.Ojha@nasa.gov and technical questions to Keith Gendreau, at Keith.C.Gendreau@nasa.gov.
