NASA extends due date for Astrophysics Pioneers opportunity

17 September 2020

The Astrophysics Pioneers (D.16) program element of ROSES solicits proposals for Astrophysics space and suborbital science investigations that are greater in cost, scope, and capability than normally possible within ROSES, eg, the Astrophysics Research and Analysis (APRA) program, but of lesser cost than the Astrophysics Explorers Mission of Opportunity (MO) program. The Pioneers program solicits investigations using platforms including SmallSats, CubeSats (including constellations), Major Balloon Missions, and International Space Station (ISS) -attached payloads. Technology development and maturation within the proposed project are allowed, but the primary review criterion for selection will be the merit of the proposed science investigation.

ROSES-2020 Amendment 54 delays the proposal due date for proposals to the Astrophysics Pioneers program element to give more time for proposers displaced by fires in the west. Proposals are now due 8 October 2020.

Questions concerning Astrophysics Pioneers should be directed to Michael Garcia at michael.r.garcia@nasa.gov.
