The Planetary Division was considering introducing a new program element in 2011 to solicit proposals for the development of mission concepts for Astrobiology Small Payloads (ASP). At the start of the year ROSES-11 had a placeholder for this ASP labeled Appendix C.25. However, Mission Concept Development for Astro- biology Small Payloads, will not be solicited in ROSES 2011 after all. SMD anticipates including this call in ROSES 2012. This call for proposals has been deferred because the required program resources are currently not available.
