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 402

Mission Week 402 starts with a continuation of the the rocking profile from mission week 401. On day of year 42 at 51:00 there is a 10 minute pointed observation during which a new rocking profile is loaded. That profile, using the regular 50 degree rock angle, then continues for the remainder of the week.

Fermi GBM Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes Catalog Available at the FSSC

As a result of improved analysis and operating modes, the Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) aboard NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope is detecting Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes at a rate of more than 800 per year. The second GBM catalog of TGFs, composed of 3356 TGFs detected from July 11 2008 through June 23 2015, has just been released on the Fermi Science Support Center.

Reminder: Cycle-9 GI Proposals are due on January 22, 2016

Proposals to participate in the Fermi Cycle-9 Guest Investigator Program are due by 16:30 EST January 22, 2016. For additional details and instructions on how to propose please refer to the Proposals page of the FSSC web site and to the Fermi appendix (D.6) to the 2015 ROSES NRA which is hosted by the NSPIRES web facility. We strongly encourage prospective proposers who have not already done so to review these documents prior to preparing their proposals.
