Amendment 34: Payloads and Research Investigations on the Surface of the Moon (PRISM) final text and due dates.

ROSES-2021 Amendment 34 releases final text and due dates for Payloads and Research Investigations on the Surface of the Moon (PRISM) as program element F.10 of ROSES-2021.

F.10 PRISM solicits the development and flight of science-driven suites of instruments and technology demonstration payloads that address science goals related to the Moon of any SMD division. They may, in addition, also address: 1) Strategic Knowledge Gaps of HEOMD and/or 2) any technology demonstration goals of STMD that advance capabilities for science, exploration, or commercial development of the Moon.

NASA expects to select suites for two Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) deliveries to the Gruithuisen Domes, a nearside silicic volcanic construct, in Q1-Q2 2025 and a south polar location in Q5 2025/Q1 2026. Mobility capabilities are expected to be available for Gruithuisen Domes delivery. For more information read the final text posted on the NSPIRES page for ROSES-2021 F.10 PRISM.

A Pre-proposal Conference is scheduled for September 28, 2021, at 2 pm eastern time and the connection information is:

Step-1 proposals are due October 22, 2021, and Step-2 proposals are due December 20, 2021.

Questions and comments concerning the final of F.10 PRISM should be addressed to Ryan Watkins and Brad Bailey via HQ-PRISM@mail.nasa.gov. Questions received by September 21, 2021, will be addressed at the Pre-proposal Conference. Questions received by December 10, 2021, will be addressed in the FAQ.

On or about September 2, 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 https://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2021.
