Amendment 17: C.11 Discovery Data Analysis Due Dates Delayed

ROSES Program element C.11 Discovery Data Analysis Program (DDAP) solicits research based on select missions of NASA's Discovery Program, and ESA's Rosetta and BepiColombo missions. DDAP's objectives are to enhance the scientific return of these missions by supporting new analyses, approaches and interpretations of data and samples.

ROSES-2021 Amendment 17 delays the due dates for C.11 DDAP by approximately a month. Mandatory Notices of Intent are now due September 28, 2021 and Proposals are due November 23, 2021.

This year, neither NSPIRES cover page budgets nor detailed budgets are requested at the time of proposal submission for DDAP; proposers must merely identify the project duration and cost category (small, medium, or large). DDAP proposals will be evaluated using Dual-Anonymous Peer Review and must be prepared following the guidelines provided.

On or about May 10, 2021, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2021" (NNH21ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at
