- YYYY-1 (Dec-Mar of year YYYY)
- YYYY-2 (Apr--July of year YYYY)

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 any other questions please contact the HET resident astronomers at astronomer(at)het.as.utexas.edu.
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.

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.
