The Earth Science Data Systems Program has periodic open solicitations for research and development to support the continual evolution of our Earth science data systems, and add to data records being provided from our systems. The Advancing Collaborative Connections for Earth System Science Program enhances, extends, and improves existing data system components.

The purpose of a Data Management Plan (DMP) is to address the management of data from Earth science missions, from the time of their data collection/observation, to their entry into permanent archives.
The NASA Procedural Requirements (NPR) 7120.8 document states the requirement for a data management plan. Consistent with this requirement, for each of the Earth science missions, NASA Earth Science Division (ESD) requires the responsible projects to develop a DMP as stated in the Level 1 Requirement below:
To ensure uniform and complete implementation of the principles embodied in the NASA Earth science data policy, the following programmatic data system requirements have been created to be utilized in airborne mission Level 1 Requirements.
*** Note that these requirements are current as of 1 August 2011. ***
