ROSES 2013 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 6: Final text for Appendix C.16 PICASSO

Description: Amendment 6 releases final text for Appendix C.16 Planetary Instrument Concepts for the Advancement of Solar System Observations (PICASSO). A few small additions have been made to Section 3, The Summary of Key Information. New text is in bold. Notices of Intent are requested by July 19, 2013, and proposals are due September 13, 2013.

Appendix C.16, Planetary Instrument Concepts for the Advancement of Solar System Observations (PICASSO) program supports the development of spacecraft-based instrument systems that show promise for use in future planetary missions. The goal of the program is to conduct planetary and astrobiology science instrument feasibility studies, concept formation, proof of concept instruments, and advanced component technology development to the point where they may be proposed in response to Appendix C.19 of ROSES. Therefore, the proposed instrument system or advanced components must address specific scientific objectives of likely future planetary science missions. The objective of the program is to develop new technologies that significantly improve instrument measurement capabilities for planetary science missions (such as Discovery, New Frontiers, Mars Exploration, and other planetary programs).
