Amendment 70: Changes to C.31 KPLO PSP Text and Due Dates
Amendment 70 makes many changes to the text of, and delays the due dates for, program element C.31, the Korea Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter Participating Scientist Program.
The objective of the Korea Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter (KPLO) Participating Scientist Program (PSP) is to enhance the scientific return during the science phase of the KPLO mission by expanding participation in the mission through new investigations that 1) broaden or complement existing mission investigations, or 2) leverage the KPLO mission data for studies outside of the original mission scope. The KPLO Participating Scientist Program is jointly solicited by the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Planetary Science Division (PSD) and the Human Exploration and Operations Directorate (HEOMD) Advanced Exploration Systems (AES) Division, but will be administered primarily by the Planetary Science Division.
This amendment makes many changes to the text of this program element including at least one significant change in scope (Section 4.2), as well as corrections, updates and clarifications of technical parameters. The due dates have been deferred to permit proposers time to adjust their proposal plans. New text is in bold and deleted text is struck through. Step-1 proposals are now due April 11, 2019 and Step-2 proposals are due June 11, 2019.
The Science Mission Directorate point of contact for this program element is Shoshana Weider, who may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Human Exploration and Operations Directorate point of contact for this program element is John Guidi, who may be reached at email@example.com.
