K2 Campaigns 14, 15 and 16 Director's Discretionary Targets program

News article posted on by Knicole Colon

A small percentage of the available K2 pixels in each campaign may be allocated by the K2 Guest Observer (GO) Office Director as Director's Discretionary Targets (DDTs). The primary utilization of DDT programs is in support of community-proposed requests that are based on exceptional, time-critical observing opportunities that cannot be accommodated with the regular cycle of Calls for Proposals for K2.

We are currently accepting DDT proposals for Campaigns 14, 15 and 16. The proposals are due by 23:59 PT (Pacific Time) on the following dates:

  • February 23, 2017 for Campaign 14
  • May 18, 2017 for Campaign 15
  • August 31, 2017 for Campaign 16

For further information on the DDT program for K2 and the requirements for proposal submission, check out the DDT website. Proposals should be submitted via email to keplergo@mail.arc.nasa.gov.
