ROSES-14 Amendment 16: Final text for C.7, PDART

ROSES-14 Amendment 16 releases final text for C.7, The Planetary Data Archiving, Restoration, and Tools Program 

The Planetary Data Archiving, Restoration, and Tools (PDART) solicits proposals to generate higher-order data products, archive and restore data sets or products, create or consolidate reference databases, digitize data, and develop or validate software tools.

The objective of this program element is to increase the amount and quality of archived data and data products available for planetary science research and exploration and to produce tools that would enable or enhance future scientific investigations. Although it is expected that a small amount of data analysis or modeling may be performed to validate any generated products, this program element does not accept proposals in which the main focus is a scientific investigation

This amendment presents the final text, which replaces the prior placeholder text in its entirety. Proposals to this program will be taken by a two-step process, in which the Notice of Intent is replaced by a required Step-1 proposal submitted by an organization Authorized Organizational Representative. Only proposers who submit a Step-1 proposal are eligible to submit a Step-2 (full) proposal. See Section 3 for details. Step-1 proposals are due July 14, 2014, and Step-2 proposals are due September 12, 2014.

On or about April 22, 2014, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2014” (NNH14ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
