ROSES-14 Amendment 24 adds the generation of new reference information to the Planetary Data Archiving, Restoration, and Tools Program.

The Planetary Data Archiving, Restoration, and Tools (PDART) Program 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 makes explicit (via a new version of section 1.5) that this program includes the generation of new reference information. Since the scope of this program has been expanded slightly the schedule for proposal due date has been reset: Step-1 proposals are now due July 17, 2014, and Step-2 proposals are now due September 17, 2014. New text is in bold and deleted text is struckthrough. 

On or about June 17, 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:
