NASA ROSES-14 Amendment 48: No Step-1 PDF upload required for D.13: K2 GO2

ROSES-14 Amendment 48: No Step-1 PDF upload required for D.13 K2 Guest Observer – Cycle 2.

This program element solicits proposals for the acquisition and analysis of new scientific data from the K2 mission ( K2 repurposes the space-borne hardware and ground-based operations of the Kepler mission ( for a pointed survey of predetermined locations along the ecliptic plane. The single, visible-wavelength instrument onboard K2 provides high-precision photometry capability, with short cadence and long cadence modes (1 minute and 30 minute exposures), and provides a powerful tool for broadband variability analyses of planetary, stellar, extragalactic, and solar system sources.

Proposals to this program will be taken by a two-step process in which the Notice of Intent is replaced by a mandatory Step-1 proposal that must be submitted by an Authorized Organizational Representative. Only proposers who submit a Step-1 proposal will be eligible to submit a Step-2 (full) proposal. Potential proposers are strongly encouraged to carefully read the information about the two-step proposal process provided in Section 4 of D.13.

Step-1 proposals to D.13 K2 Guest Observer – Cycle 2 will not take a separately uploaded PDF “proposal” document. Instead, text in the “Proposal Summary” box on the cover pages will be the description of the Step-1 proposal. The due dates remain unchanged, Step-1 proposals are due January 16, 2015, and Step-2 proposals are due February 27, 2015.

On or about December 18, 2014, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2014” (NNH14ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
