How Do I Propose a Campaign?

  1. First, review the guidelines for submitting proposals.
  2. Next, submit a preproposal; a short summary of the proposed campaign.
  3. Wait for a response from the Infrastructure Management Board (IMB) and/or ARM Science Board.
  4. A full proposal or science plan, may be requested.
  5. Decision is made—now what is expected?
