ROSES-17 Amendment 58: Solicitation of In-Space Validation of Earth Science Technologies in program element A.49 of ROSES-2017.
ESTO’s In-Space Validation of Earth Science Technologies (InVEST) program element enables new technologies and measurement concepts to be validated in space prior to use in a science mission. ESTO’s InVEST program line will flight qualify technologies and/or new measurement concepts through successful spaceborne demonstrations to TRL-7. Examples of previously funded InVEST awards can be found at: This ESTO program element is focused on in-space, orbital demonstration and validation only.
When ROSES-2017 was released on February 14, 2017, InVEST was listed as "Not Solicited this year". However, this amendment announces that InVEST is Solicited in Program Element A.49 of ROSES-2017. Responses to questions submitted to no less than 30 days before the proposal due date will be posted in a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) on the NSPIRES page for this program element under "other documents."
