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.
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 322
This week continues the interleaved Galactic center / Sky-survey observing profile to increase exposure on the Galactic center. The week starts with a continuation of the sky-survey from the previous week. The updated profile is loaded during the first inertia point observation of the week. There are no other special observations scheduled.
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.

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.

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.
