ROSES-2017 Amendment 61: C.19 NFDAP moved to 2018

Amendment 61 moves program element C.19 the New Frontiers Data Analysis Program to ROSES-2018.

The objective of the New Frontiers Data Analysis Program (NFDAP) is to enhance the scientific return from New Frontiers missions by broadening scientific participation in the analysis and interpretation of data returned by these missions. Other mission and non-mission data sets may be used to supplement these data in a supporting role, but all proposals require the use of data from at least one New Frontiers mission.

In order to better align the New Frontiers Data Analysis program element proposal deadline with the fiscal year calendar without compressing the Planetary Science Division ROSES schedule in the Fall and Winter, NFDAP due dates are being delayed and, hence, moved from ROSES-2017 to ROSES-2018. The final text and due dates for NFDAP in ROSES-2018 will be released on February 14, 2018 with the ROSES-2018 NRA, but its estimated that the Step-1 due date will be in June 2018 and the Step-2 due date in August, 2018. This move will not affect this program element’s available funds.
