Filed under ,

The Living With a Star Tools and Methods (LWSTM) Program solicits tools, techniques and/or methods that enable critically needed science advances in the area of heliophysics research covered by LWS objectives, see LWSTM seeks innovative adaptations and applications of emerging AI techniques, concepts, methodologies, etc. to demonstrate their feasibility and potential to increase science return, as well as to inform missions in heliophysics research disciplines of promising techniques and capabilities. The LWSTM program element is intended to allow heliophysics research to be an early, innovative, and less risk-averse adopter of AI tools and techniques, especially in areas with potential for high payoff, if successful.


Proposed tools and/or methods must be able to proceed expeditiously leading to completion in one and half years.


ROSES-2021 Amendment 2 adds LWSTM to ROSES-2021 as program element B.18. Step-1 Proposals are due July 1, 2021 and Step-2 proposals are due August 31, 2021.


On or about February 22, 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:
