ROSES 2013 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 10: New program element in Appendix C.22, Instrument Concepts for Europa Exploration.

Description: Amendment 10 releases a new program element in Appendix C.22, Instrument Concepts for Europa Exploration. Notices of Intent are requested by May 13, 2013, and proposals are due June 10, 2013. Questions concerning Appendix C.22, ICEE, may be directed to Curt S. Niebur at curt.niebur@nasa.gov or (202) 358-0390.

The Instrument Concepts for Europa Exploration (ICEE) Program supports the advanced development of spacecraft-based instruments for Europa exploration. The goal of the program is to mature and reduce the technical risk of instruments for a potential future Europa mission to the point where they may be proposed in response to a future announcement of flight opportunity (AO) without additional extensive technology development. Note that the ICEE Program itself does not solicit instruments for a flight opportunity. This opportunity is open to any instrument addressing the six overarching goals for Europa exploration provided in the most recent Decadal Survey "Vision and Voyages for Planetary Science in the Decade 2013-2022." However, instruments must be compatible with a Europa flyby mission architecture. It is a priority for NASA to invest in development of all instruments in the strawman science payload, but selections may not be limited to those instruments.
 
This Amendment creates Appendix C.22. Notices of Intent are requested by May 13, 2013, and proposals are due June 10, 2013.
 
Questions concerning Appendix C.22, ICEE, may be directed to Curt S. Niebur at curt.niebur@nasa.gov or (202) 358-0390.
