The objective of the Cassini Data Analysis and Participating Scientists (CDAPS) Program is to enhance the scientific return of the Cassini mission by broadening the scientific participation in the analysis and interpretation of the data returned by the mission. A subset of CDAPS selectees will also serve as Participating Scientists, which will further broaden participating in the mission by augmenting the existing science team. This program solicits research proposals to conduct scientific investigations utilizing data obtained by the Cassini and Huygens spacecraft.
The Step-1 due date for this program has been delayed from 03/22/2013 until 03/26/2013 so that it will fall after the LPSC meeting.
On or about February 25, 2013, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2013" (NNH13ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2013
