ROSES-16 Amendment 52: This amendment updates the text for D.8 The Strategic Astrophysics Technology Program

The Strategic Astrophysics Technology (SAT) program supports the maturation of key technologies to the point at which they are feasible for implementation in space flight strategic missions. The focus of the SAT program is described in terms of the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of the technologies involved. The SAT program is designed to support the maturation of technologies whose feasibility has already been demonstrated (i.e., TRL 3), to the point where they can be incorporated into NASA flight missions (TRL 6-7).

The Astrophysics Division has three main science programs: Exoplanets Exploration (ExEP), Physics of the Cosmos (PCOS), and Cosmic Origins (COR), which cover, respectively, the search for planets outside the Solar System, the origin and evolution of the universe, and the birth of stars and galaxies.

Amendment 52 presents revised text for this program element. Numerous changes have been made throughout the document. New text is in bold, deleted text is struck through. The due dates remain unchanged: Notices of intent (NOIs) are requested by January 20, 2017, and proposals are due March 17, 2017.

Technical questions about specific discipline areas may also be directed to the following Program Officers:
Technology Development for Exoplanet Missions (TDEM): Douglas Hudgins at [email protected]
Technology Development for Physics of the Cosmos (TPCOS): Rita Sambruna at [email protected]
Technology Development for the Cosmic Origins (TCOR): Mario Perez at [email protected]
