Amendment 43: New opportunity in C.29 Astrodynamics
ROSES-18 Amendment 43 creates the new program element C.29 Astrodynamics in Support of Icy Worlds Missions, which solicits the formulation, maturation, and validation of promising astrodynamics analysis tools. The development of these open-source codes has the potential to uncover new mission concepts, motivate entirely new classes of missions that may not have been previously considered, improve the efficiency of missions, and extend mission life. Science missions to icy moons orbiting the solar system's Giant Planets are of particular interest to NASA.
Step-1 proposals are due January 18, 2018 and proposals are due March 15, 2018.
Questions concerning this program element may be directed to Ryan Stephan at Ryan.A.Stephan@nasa.gov.
