The Fermi mission recognizes the importance of multiwavelength observations for Fermi science (see the statement of the Fermi Users' Group). Fermi's support of multiwavelength observations is coordinated through the Multiwavelength Observations webpage. Among other efforts, Fermi sponsors the Global Telescope Network, as well as many observational programs that provide multiwavelength observations to support Fermi science.
Please report multiwavelength observations that are relevant to Fermi on this webform. You may indicate that this information is proprietary. Non-proprietary information reported through this webform can be seen here. This information will help us plan the Fermi observing timeline.
In addition, when evaluating the impact of a TOO, we review the scheduled or ongoing multiwavelength observations that have been reported to the FSSC. If planned observations would be impacted, the project requires a higher level of urgency before implementing a TOO, but we can only conduct trade studies against known campaigns. Alternately, if a TOO is undertaken, we will inform observers who have reported their planned campaigns so that they can re-evaluate their plans.
The FSSC provides a number of services that support multiwavelength observations:
Questions about the FSSC's support of multiwavelength observations should be submitted through the FSSC help desk. Other questions about Fermi's support of multiwavelength observations should be addressed to Dave Thompson.
