Amendment 58: Solicitation of In-Space Validation of Earth Science Technologies in program element A.49 of ROSES-2017

Amendment 58: Solicitation of In-Space Validation of Earth Science Technologies in program element A.49 of ROSES-2017

ESTO’s In-Space Validation of Earth Science Technologies (InVEST) program element enables new technologies and measurement concepts to be validated in space prior to use in a science mission. ESTO’s InVEST program line will flight qualify technologies and/or new measurement concepts through successful spaceborne demonstrations to TRL-7. Examples of previously funded InVEST awards can be found at: https://esto.nasa.gov/techval_space.html. This ESTO program element is focused on in-space, orbital demonstration and validation only.

When ROSES-2017 was released on February 14, 2017, InVEST was listed as "Not Solicited this year". However, this amendment announces that InVEST is Solicited in Program Element A.49 of ROSES-2017. Responses to questions submitted to sachidananda.r.babu@nasa.gov no less than 30 days before the proposal due date will be posted in a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) on the NSPIRES page for this program element under "other documents."

Notices of Intent are requested by February 2, 2018, and proposals are due by March 26, 2018.

Questions concerning this program element should be directed to Sachidananda Babu at sachidananda.r.babu@nasa.gov.
