NASA ROSES-13 Amendment 31: Final text for Appendix A.29, Suomi NPP ST


ROSES-13 Amendment 31 releases final text for Appendix A.29, Science Team (ST) and Science Investigator-led Processing Systems for Earth System Data Records From Suomi NPP (National Polar-orbiting Partnership, formerly the NPOESS Preparatory Project). Notices of Intent to propose are requested by January 15, 2014, and the due date for proposals is March 10, 2014.
 
This solicitation defines and calls for 1) a next phase of activities for the NASA Suomi NPP ST and 2) the establishment of Science Investigator-led Processing Systems (SIPS) to produce NASA Suomi-NPP science data products.  It is now time for the Suomi NPP ST to direct its attention to developing the refined and/or alternative data products yet needed to ensure high-quality data records for Earth system science and applications that enable continuity with EOS data products.  In addition, NASA will continue applications-relevant Suomi NPP research under this solicitation.  If resources permit and scientific priority is clearly established in a meritorious proposal, NASA also plans to support, as a secondary priority, research to develop and/or advance other new Suomi NPP data products.  This solicitation also requests proposals from organizations and teams to serve as SIPS to produce NASA Suomi NPP standard and experimental products developed by the Suomi NPP ST and to produce or enable production of near-real-time data products.   
 
On or about November 19, 2013, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2013" (NNH13ZDA001N) will be posted at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the ROSES 2013 RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2013
