    The primary goal of the Emission Line Project (ELP) is to produce a catalog of observed spectral lines with comparison to current plasma spectral models on an ion-by-ion basis. The line source targets Procyon, Capella, and HR 1099 are specially chosen because they exhibit emission corresponding to a wide range of plasma temperatures from $10^6-3\times 10^7$K. The stellar spectra are rich in emission lines from high ionization states of cosmically abundant elements. The ELP is organized by the Chandra X-Ray Center in an effort to improve the plasma spectral models used to analyze and fit X ray spectral data.
