This amendment defers the program element in Appendix C.9 entitled "New Horizons at Jupiter Data Analysis" from ROSES-2007 to ROSES-2008.
The New Horizons at Jupiter Data Analysis program (NH-JDAP) will not be competed in 2007. A broader Jupiter Data Analysis Program (JDAP) will be competed in ROSES 2008.
NH-JDAP will be broadened to include the analysis of older data on the Jupiter system, not just data from the New Horizons mission. This is appropriate in that the Galileo mission data returned after calendar year 2000 was never open to a Data Analysis Program. Furthermore the planetary community has been greatly stimulated by the Cassini mission and the new Flagship studies on the Jupiter system, and this provides a perfect opportunity to support further mission studies in this area. Voyager data will also be eligible.
NASA plans to release both a Cassini DAP and the expanded Jupiter DAP calls in ROSES 2008. ROSES 2008 will be released in mid-February 2008. The due dates will be in the May timeframe and will be separated by 2-4 weeks to facilitate PIs proposing to both programs. For further details, please carefully read the descriptions of JDAP and CDAP in ROSES 2008 or contact the NASA program officer identified below.
On or about November14, 2007, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2007" (NNH07ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ (select "Solicitations" then "Open Solicitations" then "NNH07ZDA001N").
