This program element solicits proposals for focused development of technologies that feed into and enable missions in the three science program areas of the Astrophysics Division: Exoplanet Exploration, Physics of the Cosmos, and Cosmic Origins. The Strategic Astrophysics Technology (SAT) program is designed to address the mid-TRL “gap” between TRL levels 4 and 6. The goal of the SAT program is to support the maturation of technologies whose feasibility has already been demonstrated to the point where they can be incorporated into NASA flight missions.

Through this amendment, the areas of emphasis for strategic investment in technology development for NASA’s astrophysics programs have been revised in response to the Astro2010 Decadal Survey, New Worlds, New Horizons. Specifically, Sections 2-4 of ROSES-10, Appendix D.11 contain descriptions of revised areas of technology development that are of particular interest to NASA.

NOIs due January 28, 2011. Proposals due March 25, 2011.
