Welcome to TESS Asteroseismic Science Operations Center

The TESS Asteroseismic Science Operations Center (TASOC) provides asteroseismological data from the NASA TESS mission to astronomers who are members of the TESS Asteroseismic Science Consortium (TASC). It is also the platform used to facilitate the international collaborations within TASC.

If you are a member of TASC, please log in below...




In order to have access to TASOC you have to be a member of TASC. Please see the "New TASC member" page on how to become a member.

9th Mar 2022: TASC GI Cycle 5 Coordination

The TESS Guest Investigator (GI) office is soliciting proposals for the first year of the second extended mission, which is planned to start in September 2022. Like in the first extended mission TASC does not have reserved 2-minute and 20-second cadence targets, and hence GI proposals from TASC are important to ensure the selection of targets for asteroseismology. Note that the cadence for full-frame images in the second extended mission will be decreased to 200 seconds (Nyquist frequency of 216 c/d or 2500 µHz). More information on the GI program (including a proposal template) can be found here.

The proposal deadline for Cycle 5 is .

Similar to previous cycles, we set up a Cycle 5 GI coordination page on the TASOC Wiki to coordinate the submission of TASC Cycle 5 proposals.

If you are planning to submit a GI proposal and would like to coordinate, we recommend the following steps:

  1. Add your proposal information on the Cycle 5 GI coordination page. Teams with similar science cases are encouraged to coordinate. Non-US TASC members are encouraged to approach US-based TASC members (who are eligible for funding).
  2. Submit your target lists on the TASC Cycle 5 Proposal Submission Page. Note that 2-min and 20-sec target lists need to be submitted separately.

If you have any questions, concerns, or need help with putting together TASC GI proposals please contact the co-chairs of the TASC GI Coordinated Activity.
