Taeduk Radio Astronomy Observatory
2022-2023 Season Call For Proposals
The next deadline for proposals is 23:59 KST on 2022 August 10.
Proposals should be emailed as a single file in PDF format to:
The Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI) invites proposals for
the Taeduk Radio Astronomy Observatory (TRAO) 14-meter telescope for the 2022
Fall - 2023 Spring season. Proposal applicant should submit a proposal
containing scientific and technical justifications (up to three pages total,
including figures, tables, and references) in addition to the proposal cover,
written in English using the latex templates:
There are two categories of proposals for the 2022-2023 observing season.
1. General Program (GP): single-year observing program with a telescope time of
up to 300 hours
2. Key Science Program (KSP): multi-year observing program with a telescope
time of 400 hours per year, for up to three years
TRAO supports multi-beam spectroscopy observations (4 x 4 array: SEQUOIA-TRAO)
in the frequency range of 85 - 115.6 GHz. The TRAO system supports
single-sideband observations for position-switching or OTF observations. The
backend has two spectral windows controlled independently, each window with
4096 channels in a 62.5 MHz bandwidth. In addition, a single-pixel wide-band (2
GHz) spectrometer is available. Proposal candidates should consult the TRAO
Status Report for additional technical specifications:
TRAO has a shared-risk remote observing mode available. However, inexperienced
users are advised to do the observations on the site. Outside (non-KASI) PIs
who intend to use the remote observing mode should specify local collaborators
in the proposal. The local collaborators are responsible for handling on-site
tasks during the remote observations, such as resetting the system in case of
system failure, which happens occasionally.
국내 사용자 대상 공지:
TRAO는 학생들을 지도하는 교수/교사님들에게
"교육 목적 관측시간"을 배정할 수 있습니다.
교육 목적이므로, 논문 성과에 대한 구체적인 고려는 없어도 되지만,
현장 관측 교육은 해당 교수/교사가 직접하셔야 합니다.
교육 목적 관측시간 배정을 원하시는 분은 대덕전파천문대장에게 직접 문의하시기 바랍니다.
