the OSSOS collaboration

The OSSOS collaboration has a core team and a set of topic teams, each with a team leader. The core team programs observations, reduces the acquired data, discovers new objects, and provides the topic teams with the detected objects, orbit classification, survey characterization and a survey simulator. For some topic teams, the data from Core are all they need; for other topic teams, additional telescope time at other facilities is required.
