Phase I Proposal
The HET Board of Directors have announced the start of Early Science Operations
beginning July 1st, 2016 until September 30, 2016 with LRS2. The amount of time available is approximately one week per dark period.
Please contact your local HET or TAC representative to find out how your institution is going to run Phase I proposals and TAC allocations.
For the period of June - Sept 2016 we will start some amount of VIRUS commissioning. Science targets for these instruments will be chosen by those science teams. If you wish to be involved in this process please contact the instrument PI.
Phase I involves the interaction between your TAC and you the Principal
Investigator. First you should read what each TAC requires. Then
you should become familiar with the observing procedures and capabilities
of the HET.
The following links will take you to the appropriate web page for your TAC
You can get information about the telescope, instruments and calibrations
in various locations in this web site. It is important to plan for extra time
for overhead or special calibrations. Below we list some of the more
important links you may need.
