Amendment 18: A.44 Advanced Component Technology Final Text Released.

The Advanced Component Technology (ACT) program seeks proposals for technology development leading to new component as well as subsystem-level spaceborne and/or airborne measurement techniques to be developed in support of the Science Mission Directorate's Earth Science Division.

The goals of the ACT program are to research, develop, and demonstrate component- and subsystem-level technology development that:

  • Enable or dramatically enhance Earth observation remote sensing measurements in new, innovative ways.
  • Reduce the size, weight, power requirements, risks, cost, and development time of Earth science remote sensing observation systems.

ROSES-2020 Amendment 18 releases final text for A.44 Advanced Component Technology. Notices of intent are requested by May 22, 2020, and proposals are due July 21, 2020. A preproposal bidder's conference will be held Monday, May 18 at 1:00 PM Eastern Time, Phone: 1-844-467-6272, Passcode: 831772.

On or about April 21, 2020, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2020" (NNH20ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at
