A total of 48 new proposals were received for the 1 August submission deadline for Semester 2018A. The table below summarizes the approved observing programs for the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) / High Sensitivity Array (HSA). Listed are the PI name, proposal ID, proposal title, maximum hours approved, and proposal type (Regular, Triggered, or Large). Proposals from previous semesters that were awarded time by LBO in 18A are included.

For each approved program, the Proposal Finder Tool will have access to its authors, title, abstract, and total approved hours.
