The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate (SMD) is releasing a Program Element Appendix (PEA) as Amendment 5 to the NASA Announcement of Opportunity entitled “Second Stand Alone Missions of Opportunity Notice (SALMON-2).” SALMON-2 is an omnibus AO that enables independent proposal opportunities that support the science, exploration, and technology objectives of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD), Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD), and Office of the Chief Technologist (OCT). This proposal opportunity is for Earth Venture Instrument-2 (PEA M: EVI2).

Earth Venture Instrument-2 is an element within the Earth System Science Pathfinder (ESSP) Program that conducts Principal Investigator (PI)-led Earth science investigations relevant to SMD’s Earth Science Division. This solicitation calls for proposals for complete PI-led science investigations requiring spaceflight instrument development. When deployed on a satellite selected by NASA, these spaceflight instruments will be used to conduct innovative, integrated, hypothesis- or scientific question-driven investigations addressing pressing Earth system science issues. This solicitation solicits investigations addressing any of the science focus areas in NASA’s Earth Science program.

 This solicitation will be open from August 7, 2013, through November 7, 2013. Notices of Intent are required for all proposals, and are due to NASA on September 10, 2013. Upon the release date, the full text of the AO and all appendices will be available electronically at and at A preproposal WebEx conference will be held in late August 2013; see for details.

Participation is open to all categories of organizations (U.S. and non-U.S), including educational institutions, industry, not-for-profit organizations, Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), NASA Centers, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and other Government agencies.

Direct questions specifically regarding this solicitation to: Dr. Kenneth Jucks, EVI-2 Program Scientist, Earth Science Division, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC 20546; Tel.: (202) 358-0476; E-mail: (subject line to read “EVI-2 AO”).

This notice constitutes a NASA Research Announcement as contemplated in FAR 6.102(d)(2).
