ROSES-19 Amendment 45 adds a new program element to ROSES-2019: B.15 Heliophysics System Observatory (HSO) Connect program.


The goal of the Heliophysics System Observatory (HSO) Connect program is to enhance the scientific return of the HSO by supporting investigations that innovatively connect observations from one or more HSO missions with spacecraft or ground-based observations from other SMD Divisions, and/or other agencies within or outside the U.S. This instance of HSO-Connect focuses on observations from the Parker Solar Probe (PSP) mission together with other observations throughout the whole heliosphere. This includes data from currently operating space missions and ground-based observatories, and can include data from missions or observatories not yet launched or operational, but expected to be operational within the time interval of awards from this competition. In addition to PSP observations, investigations can include, but are not limited to, any HSO mission, but also Solar Orbiter, Bepi-Colombo, the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) for example. In order to include observations not yet available, NASA Heliophysics is relaxing the requirement that all data must be in a public archive ahead of proposal submission.


A Step-1 proposal is mandatory for all proposers. Step-1 proposals are due by January 15, 2020, and Step-2 proposals are due March 13, 2020.


On or about October 25, 2019, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2019” (NNH19ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
