Introduction to the Proposal and Observation Process

The normal Gemini proposal process is comprised of two phases:

  • Phase I - an application for time is made to National Time Allocation Committees (NTACs) supported by a scientific and technical justification.
  • Phase II - observations are prepared with the Gemini Observing Tool (OT) software.
