ROSES 2012 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 9: Final text for Appendix A.27 AITT

Description: On or about June 25, 2012 Amendment 9 will present the final text of Appendix A.27Airborne Instrument Technology Transition, which replaces the draft version in its entirety. Notices of Intent to propose are requested by July 23, 2012. Proposals are due on September 24, 2012

Airborne Instrument Technology Transition (AITT) seeks to upgrade mature instruments developed under NASA’s Instrument Incubator Program, or by similar NASA programs or activities, for operation from various platforms supported by the Airborne Science Program. This opportunity provides for engineering activities leading to the integration of instruments to airborne platforms that will deploy them as part of organized airborne science campaigns which typically involve multiple instruments and/or platforms. The goal is to upgrade existing operating instruments to campaign-ready airborne configuration(s). No funding is available for research and development of new instrumentation.
 
Proposals submitted to this announcement shall support the objectives of one or more of the Earth science Focus Areas. Earth science focus areas include: Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems, Climate Variability and Change, Water and Energy Cycle, Atmospheric Composition; Weather, and, Earth Surface and Interior (see Appendix A.1 for descriptions of the focus areas). Relevance to these focus areas is indicated by the degree to which instrument products (i.e. science and engineering data) support the goals and activities of existing and future field campaigns sponsored by the NASA Research and Analysis program; it may also be demonstrated by relevance to the goals and activities of NASA’s Applied Science Program. Examples of previous field campaigns can be found at the Airborne Science Website.

Notices of Intent to propose are requested by July 23, 2012. Proposals are due on September 24, 2012.
