Filed under , ,

The Heliophysics Innovations for Technology and Science (HITS) program solicits proposals for 1) Outstandingly innovative and novel ideas to advance Heliophysics research that do not fit within HPD’s current slate of program elements in ROSES Appendix B or 2) Expeditious research activity to take advantage of a target of opportunity due to an unforeseen occasion in the Heliophysics system. It is anticipated that proposals to this program will offer the possibility for major scientific breakthroughs and/or new approaches to gaining knowledge and understanding of the Heliophysics system. Proposals must focus on topics that offer innovative research to advance Heliophysics science and may include emphasis on high intellectual risk/high impact research.


ROSES-2021 Amendment 18 releases final text for Heliophysics Innovations for Technology and Science. No Step-1 proposal or Notice of Intent is requested. Proposals may be submitted at any time through March 29, 2022.


On or about May 11, 2021, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2021” (NNH21ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on SARA’s ROSES blog at:
