Description We propose a survey of unclassified GeV sources from the 3FGL and 2FHL Fermi Gamma-ray Observatory catalogs. Using several parameter cuts, we have identified a sub-sample that will be dominated by pulsars with possible small inclusion of high mass X-ray binaries (HMXBs), PWNe, and SNRs. We aim to identify their X-ray counterparts, thus increasing the population of pulsars detected in both gamma-rays and X-rays.

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.
