Amendment 32: B.9 H-FORT Due Date Delay

B.9 Heliophysics Flight Opportunities for Research and Technology (H-FORT) seeks to advance the development of technologies and their application to enable investigation of key heliophysics science questions through demonstration of innovative technologies and associated science investigations in a relevant environment. To advance the Technology Readiness Levels of promising technologies through testing in a relevant environment, H-FORT utilizes the following sub-elements:

  • Low Cost Access to Space, which includes technology and associated science investigations that can be carried out with instruments flown on, e.g., suborbital rockets, stratospheric balloons, suborbital reusable launch vehicles and
  • SmallSats and Rideshare Opportunities, which includes technology and associated science investigations that can be carried out with instruments flown on SmallSats (including CubeSats) or payloads on the International Space Station (ISS), Department of Defense (DoD), or other rideshare opportunities.

This amendment delays the due date for proposals to this program element. Proposals are now due November 1, 2019.

Questions concerning this program element may be directed to Dan Moses who may be reached at dan.moses@nasa.gov
