AKARI Phase 3-II (Post-Helium) ESA Call for Proposals

This announcement dealt with observations to be performed in the AKARI post-Helium phase, in which imaging and spectroscopic capabilities are available in the 1.8 to 5.5 micron wavelength range. The Phase 3-II observation period starts on October 15th, 2009 for one year.

Resulting from ESA’s participation in the mission, 10% of the total observing opportunities in the non-survey parts of the mission are reserved for programmes from individuals and teams from institutes located in ESA member states.

Japanese and Korean astronomers were referred to the parallel ISAS Call.

Deadline for submission

The deadline for proposals submission was 6 July, 2009, 9:00 UT.


  • AKARI Observer's Manual for Phase 3-II
