WHAT IS CHEOPS, WHAT CAN IT DO?

 

Two preesentations have been prepared to give you first a taster, and then a more depth overview of what the CHEOPS is and what the mission has to offer. You will get an overview of the technical capabilities of CHEOPS (science, sky visibility, performances) as well as how you can apply for observing time on the satellite.

The recommendation is to read the presentations in the order that they are listed below.

  1. CHEOPS in brief - a 15-slide presentation designed to give a very top-level view of the capabiltiies of CHEOPS, with links to tools, additional documents and relevant websites/webpages.
  2. CHEOPS in a nutshell -  a more in-depth presentation with details on the mission, its science and its capabilities, together with information on the process for requesting CHEOPS observing time and the tools available to help with proposal preparation.

For more in-depth coverage it is recommended that you read the CHEOPS Observers Manual, and also to consult some of the presentations and documents available from the links given in the presentations.

A list of papers published on the mission, both science/observational and technical (and including the definitive mission paper by Benz et al. (2021)), can be found at this link.
