Description SNR G22.7-0.2 is a well-resolved shell (26. in diameter), observed in a large multi-wavelength dataset. It is possibly in interaction with the adjacent SNR G23.3-0.3, with likely consequences for high-energy particle production. These circumstances make this SNR a good candidate for a detailed study in the keV band, which is still missing. We propose a full coverage of the SNR shell with emph{XMM-Newton}, to complete the characterization of its parameters, starting with its age and distance, as well as to map the properties of non-thermal particles around its shell and study the proposed SNR-SNR interaction region.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
