Key Science Projects

The NRAO highlights a range of highly ranked projects each semester by designating them Key Science Projects. The designation of an approved observing program as a Key Science Project is based on its scientific ranking from the proposal review process, nomination by the NRAO Time Allocation Committee, and approval by the NRAO Directors Review.
