ROSES-19 Amendment 1: This amendment releases final text for B.7 Space Weather Science Applications Operations 2 Research which was TBD on release of ROSES-19.


NASA’s role is to implement and support a national research program to understand the Sun and its interactions with Earth and the Solar System to advance space weather modeling and prediction capabilities applicable to space weather forecasting; develop and operate space-weather-related research missions, develop instrument capabilities, and models; and support the transition of space weather models and technology from research to operations and from operations to research. 


NOAA’s role is to provide timely and accurate operational space weather forecasts, watches, warnings, alerts, and real-time space weather monitoring for the government, civilian, and commercial sectors, exclusive of the responsibilities of the Secretary of Defense; and to ensure the continuous improvement of operational space weather services, utilizing partnerships, as appropriate, with the research community, including academia and the private sector, and relevant agencies to develop, validate, test, and transition space weather observation platforms and models from research to operations and from operations to research.


To be relevant, work proposed in response to this call must be in support of one or more NASA and/or NOAA goals and objectives described above, with attention to transitioning from science research to applications driven by the expressed need of the users.


Step-1 proposals are due by December 16, 2019, and the due date for 10-page Step-2 proposals is February 13, 2020.


On or about April 4, 2019 this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2019” (NNH19ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
