Fermi Science Support Center

The Fermi Science Support Center (FSSC) runs the guest investigator program, creates and maintains the mission time line, provides analysis tools for the scientific community, and archives and serves the Fermi data. This web site is the portal to Fermi for all guest investigators.

This view shows the entire sky at energies greater than 1 GeV based on five years of data from the LAT instrument on NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. Brighter colors indicate brighter gamma-ray sources.

Look into the "Resources" section for finding schedules, publications, useful links etc. The "Proposals" section is where you will be able to find the relevant information and tools to prepare and submit proposals for guest investigator projects. At "Data" you will be able to access the Fermi databases and find the software to analyse them. Address all questions and requests to the helpdesk in "Help".

Fermi Observations for MW 330

This week uses a new observing profile for sky survey observations with a reduced two-orbit repeat time of 11,444 seconds compared to the previous repeat interval of 11,454 seconds. This is due to the expected continued slow change of the orbital period of Fermi. Apart from this, the sky survey profile is identical with a rock angle of +/- 50 degrees. This week continues interleaved sky survey observations and inertial pointings to increase the exposure around the Galactic center. The week starts with a brief continuation of the pointed observation at the end of Mission week 329. The updated sky survey profile is loaded during this observation. There are no special observations scheduled during this week.

NASA's Fermi Space Telescope Reveals New Source of Gamma Rays

Observations by NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope of several stellar eruptions, called novae, firmly establish these relatively common outbursts almost always produce gamma rays, the most energetic form of light.

NASA's Fermi Finds A 'Transformer' Pulsar

In late June 2013, an exceptional binary containing a rapidly spinning neutron star underwent a dramatic change in behavior never before observed. The pulsar's radio beacon vanished, while at the same time the system brightened fivefold in gamma rays, the most powerful form of light, according to measurements by NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.

Temporary Disruption of GBM Data Delivery

A planned outage at the National Space Science and Technology Center (NSSTC) in Huntsville over the weekend of 12-13 July will result in delayed delivery of some GBM data products. A backup pipeline will be in place by noon EDT Friday 11. GRB alerts and localization notices should be broadcast through the GRB Coordinates Network without extra latency but refined localization products and GRB response file delivery may be delayed. Trigger CTIME, CSPEC, and TTE data products will be produced by the backup pipeline but daily CTIME, CSPEC, and position history files will not. Operations at NSSTC should be nominal on July 14 at which time the missing data products will be delivered to the FSSC.
