ROSES 2014 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 2: Final text for C.14, Planetary Science and Technology Through Analog Research

Description: On or about Monday February 24 Amendment 2 will present the final text for C.14 PSTAR, which will replace the prior placeholder text in its entirety. Proposals to this program will be taken by a two-step process, see Section 2.8 for details. Step-1 proposals are due June 23, 2014, and Step-2 proposals are due August 22, 2014.

NASA analog missions research addresses the need for integrated interdisciplinary field experiments as an integral part of preparation for future human and robotic missions. Future planetary research associated with solar system exploration requires the development of relevant, miniaturized instrumentation capable of extensive operations on lunar, asteroid, and planetary surfaces throughout the Solar System. To this end, and in collaboration with other Directorates at NASA and other agencies, this Planetary Science and Technology Through Analog Research (PSTAR) program solicits proposals for investigations focused on exploring the relevant environments on Earth in order to develop a sound technical and scientific basis to conduct planetary research on other solar system bodies. The PSTAR program is a science-driven exploration program that is expected to result in new science and operational/technological capabilities to enable the next generation of planetary exploration.
 
On or about Monday February 24 Amendment 2 will present the final text, which will replace the prior placeholder text in its entirety. Proposals to this program will be taken by a two-step process, in which the Notice of Intent is replaced by a required Step-1 proposal submitted by an organization Authorized Organizational Representative. Only proposers who submit a Step-1 proposal are eligible to submit a Step-2 (full) proposal. See Section 2.8 for details. Step-1 proposals are due June 23, 2014, and Step-2 proposals are due August 22, 2014.
