This amendment moves the responsibility for supporting investigations that involve the analysis of samples, including the analysis of samples returned by NASA's planetary science missions to Earth such as Genesis and Stardust, from the Planetary Mission Data Analysis program (PMDAP) described in Appendix C.11 to the Sample Return Laboratory Instrumentation and Data Analysis program (SRLIDAP) described in Appendix C.3. The funding required for the support of sample analysis investigations has also been moved from PMDAP to SRLIDAP.
In addition, 4-year proposals are now allowed for SRLIDAP investigations.
No change has been made in the due dates for these programs. For SRLIDAP (including sample analysis investigations), Notices of Intent to propose (NOIs) are due on May 1, 2008, and proposals are due on June 27, 2008. For PMDAP, NOIs are due on June 6, 2008, and proposals are due on August 8, 2008.
On or about March 21, 2008, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2008" (NNH08ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ (select "Solicitations" then "Open Solicitations" then "NNH08ZDA001N").
