Call for NASA Keck Key Strategic Mission Support Proposals for 2022A

NASA is a partner in the Keck telescopes, allocating ~47 nights/semester. For the 2022A proposal cycle, in addition to General Observing and Mission Support proposals, NASA is soliciting proposals for large Key Strategic Mission Support (KSMS) programs.

KSMS projects may support past, present, and/or future missions, including the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). Between 10-60 nights total over 2 years will be allocated between one or more KSMS projects with a maximum of 15 nights/semester. An important element of KSMS programs is a plan for timely release of processed data through the Keck Observatory Archive in a form suitable for use by the broader community.

The 2022A NASA Keck proposal review will use a Dual Anonymous Proposal Review (DAPR) process. More information on DAPR and requirements of the KSMS proposals will be released with the Call for Proposals on 30 July 2021.

Required but non-binding Notices of Intent (NOI) for KSMS programs are due by 16 August 2021 at 7p Eastern/6p Central/5p Mountain/4p Pacific. Read the full NASA Keck KSMS announcement for more details.
