ROSES-17 Amendment 42: This amendment releases Final text for D.6 Fermi Guest Investigator - Cycle 11.
The Fermi Guest Investigator (GI) program solicits proposals for basic research relevant to the Fermi mission. The primary goal of this mission is to perform 20 MeV to >300 GeV gamma-ray measurements over the entire celestial sphere, with sensitivity a factor of 30 or more greater than that obtained by earlier space missions. A secondary goal includes the study of transient gamma-ray sources with energies extending from 8 keV up to 300 GeV.
The Fermi GI program is intended to encourage scientific participation by providing funding to carry out investigations using Fermi data, to conduct correlative observations at other wavelengths, to develop data analysis techniques applicable to the Fermi data, and to carry out theoretical investigations in support of Fermi observations.
Phase-1 proposals are due via ARK RPS http://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/ark/rps/ by 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time on February 23, 2018.
On or about November 1, 2017, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2017" (NNH17ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: https://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2017/
Technical questions concerning this program element may be directed to Chris Shrader of the Fermi Science Support Center at Chris.R.Shrader@nasa.gov and there is a Help Desk at http://fermi.gsfc.nasa.gov/ssc/help/.
Questions concerning Fermi capabilities may be directed to Julie McEnery,
