ROSES-11 Amendment 21: Final Text for A.33, Earth Science Applications: Disasters

Amendment 21 provides the final text and proposal due date for Appendix A.33, Earth Science Applications: Disasters.

ROSES-11 Appendix A.33, Earth Science Applications: Disasters is specifically focused on the ability of organizations (public and private) to leverage NASA Earth observations, derived products, and modeling capabilities in order to advance their skill to monitor, identify, assess, predict, and respond to natural and technological disasters. Furthermore, this solicitation will seek the development of sustainable solutions that incorporate solid business/organization models that strive to incorporate performance metrics, fiscal realism of sustained operations, and the vision to meet the disaster challenges of both today and in the future.

This amendment presents the final text for this Appendix, which replaces the prior text in its entirety. The changes include: The priority topics in Section 2.1 have been revised. This program element will be implemented in two Stages. Twelve month Stage 1-Feasibility projects will be awarded with an Option for three-year Stage 2-Decisions projects to be awarded at the end of Stage 1. Notices of Intent to propose are due September 22, 2011 and Proposals are due November 22, 2011.

On or about August 25, 2011, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2011” (NNH11ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at (select “Solicitations” then “Open Solicitations” then “NNH11ZDA001N”).
