Europa SALMON-2 AO released

SMD has released final text for complete PI-led instrument investigations for a Europa mission as Appendix O of SALMON-2. The term "complete" encompasses investigation phases from project initiation, through instrument development and science operations, to scientific analysis of space based data. It is anticipated that approximately 20 proposals will be selected for seven-month, $1.25M (FY 2015) concept studies and development. At the conclusion of these studies, NASA may select approximately eight of the instrument investigations to complete Phase A and subsequent mission phases. Proposals are due October 17, 2014. For more information see Appendix O of SALMON-2 http://nspires.nasaprs.com and or http://go.nasa.gov/SALMON2-AO.
