ROSES-19 Amendment 21: This Amendment creates a new opportunity in ROSES-19 through program element B.14 Heliophysics System Observatory Data Support.


The Heliophysics System Observatory Data Support (HSO Data Support) program solicits proposals for ground-based solar and coronagraphic observations that would complement and provide context for the Parker Solar Probe (PSP) data set, and enable an enhanced science return from the mission. These observations are expected to cover as much as possible of the 30 days before and 30 days after the 2019 and 2020 perihelia: 1 September 2019, 29 January 2020, 07 June 2020, and 27 September 2020.


HSO Data Support requires the acquisition, processing, and archiving of data from ground-based observatories; a limited amount of funding is available to cover required tasks in excess of normal operations. While NASA expects observatories to interact with the PSP science team and the Solar Data Analysis Center (SDAC) to optimize data acquisition and archiving, this solicitation does not support science investigations or any other task beyond those necessary for the archiving of the specified observations. 


This amendment releases a new opportunity in ROSES-19 through program element B.14 Heliophysics System Observatory Data Support. 8-page Proposals are due August 1, 2019. As a result of this shortened timeline, no preliminary statement such as an NOI or Step-1 proposal is requested. Awards to non-governmental organizations will be as cooperative agreements. This program element only accepts proposals submitted by U.S. institutions, regardless of an observatory’s location or management


On or about July 2, 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:
