ROSES 2009 Clarifications, corrections and amendments
Stay up to date with the latest ROSES 2009 clarifications, corrections and amendments. Let the updates come to you, subscribe to this RSS feed.
These are SARA's unofficial versions. The official version is always what appears in the text of the program element on the NSPIRES web page.
Amendment 9: a new proposal opportunity in Appendix A.39: ESSP Venture-class Science Investigations: Earth Venture-1
Amendment 9 establishes a new program element in Appendix A.39 entitled “ESSP Venture-class Science Investigations: Earth Venture-1.” This call solicits proposals for complete suborbital science investigations to conduct innovative, integrated, hypothesis or scientific question-driven approaches to Earth system science, involving temporally sustained data acquisition.
The new version of Appendix D.10 replaces the previous text in its entirety. Changes from last year: The schedule and anticipated funding level for Cycle 2 have been updated, a modified submission process for observing targets is presented, and a summary table of key information has been added.
The annual budget for D.11, Technology Development for Exoplanet Missions, is $2.6M per year.
The main changes from Cycle 5 AO are: 1) the number of monitoring proposals is less constrained, 2) the budget ceiling for “Fill-in” target proposals has been halved to $20K, 3) the page limit for proposals in the “High-redshift” GRB category has been raised from 4 to 6 pages and their budget ceiling increased, 4) the definition and limits of time-constrained observations have been added, 5) contact information has been updated, and 6) due dates have changed: proposals are due 9/30/2009.
A.28, Science Definition Team for the CLARREO Mission, point of contact has changed from Donald Anderson to Kenneth Jucks
A.11, Modeling, Analysis, and Prediction, point of contact has changed from Donald Anderson to David Considine.
A.30 Decision Support through Earth Science Research Results will not be solicited in ROSES 2009.
A.31 Earth Science Applications Feasibility Studies will not be solicited in ROSES 2009.
A.22 (IDS) point of contact has changed from William Emanuel to Thomas Wagner.
Amendment 6: New proposal opportunity in Appendix D.11: Technology Development for Exoplanet Missions
Amendment 6 creates Appendix D.11: Technology Development for Exoplanet Missions, to develop specific technologies (TRL 4-6) that feed into key exoplanet exploration measurement techniques.
