ROSES 2020 PRISM solicitation for lunar science and technology payloads

5 November 2020

The Payloads and Research Investigations on the Surface of the Moon (PRISM) program element solicits proposals for investigations that include development and flight of science-driven suites of instruments and technology demonstration payloads that will be delivered to the lunar surface on Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS).

This solicitation calls for science investigations that will be delivered to the lunar surface in late Calendar Year (CY) 2023 and early CY2024 to predetermined lunar landing sites. These deliveries will go to Reiner Gamma (a lunar swirl) in Quarter 4 2023, and a Schrödinger Basin impact melt (lunar far side) in Q2 2024. Proposals must identify one of these lunar landing sites and propose an investigation uniquely achieved at that location. No other landing sites will be proposed. Some technology development and maturation within the proposed project is allowed, but the primary review criteria for selection are the merit of the proposed science investigation and ability to deliver on schedule.

This amendment releases the text for a new program element in ROSES-2020 in the form of this program E.11 Payloads and Research Investigations on the Surface of the Moon (PRISM). Proposals to this program will be submitted by a two-step process in which the Notice of Intent is replaced by a mandatory Step-1 proposal that must be submitted by an organization Authorized Organizational Representative. Only proposers who submit a Step-1 proposal are eligible to submit a Step-2 (full) proposal. Step-1 Proposals are due 11 December 2020 and Step-2 proposals are due 19 January 2021.

Interested parties may direct inquiries to Brad Bailey at HQ-PRISM@mail.nasa.gov.
