Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) science objectives during its prime mission phase centered around ocean wind observations, in particular in and near the inner core of tropical cyclones. CYGNSS entered its extended mission phase in 2019 and all eight spacecraft and their science payloads continue to operate and produce bistatic radar data nominally.


This ROSES element seeks to support the continued use of both the ocean and land data products through scientific investigations and end-user applications; successful proposers will become members of the Competed CYGNSS Science Team. This program element has eligibility requirements involving the type of data that may (and must) be used in the proposed activities and there are special requirements on current science team members and proposers from federal agencies other than NASA.


ROSES-2020 Amendment 40 adds information about new eligible datasets and delays the proposal due dates. NOIs are requested by October 2, 2020, and proposals are now due November 6, 2020.


On or about July 2, 2020, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2020” (NNH20ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at will appear on SARA’s ROSES blog at:
