ROSES-22 D.19 Ultraviolet Transient Astronomy Satellite Participating Scientists Program

The ROSES opportunity D.19 Ultraviolet Transient Astronomy Satellite Participating Scientists Program (ULTRASAT PSP) solicits proposals for U.S.-based researchers to join the ULTRASAT science team as U.S. ULTRASAT Participating Scientists. Selected Participating Scientists will pursue science investigations related to ULTRASAT and will contribute to the mission by joining one or more topical ULTRASAT science working groups, where they will help develop, coordinate, and implement research plans for the corresponding science area. Successful proposals are expected to describe one or more specific research questions to be answered using the unique capabilities of ULTRASAT.

ROSES-2022 Amendment 81 releases text and due dates for this new opportunity. Notices of intent are strongly encouraged by 23 January 2023, and proposals are due 31 March 2023.

This program element differs from and supersedes the default rules in the ROSES Summary of Solicitation and the Guidebook in a number of ways:

  • The Science/Technical/Management (S/T/M) Section is limited to 6 pages, including references
  • No Data Management Plan is required for this element
  • No NSPIRES cover page budget is requested nor are budget details or justification part of the peer reviewed proposal documents. However, the normal separately uploaded "Total" budget file is required for proposers requesting NASA funding.

This program will evaluate proposals using dual-anonymous peer review

Please direct questions concerning D.19 ULTRASAT PSP to Valerie Connaughton at valerie.connaughton@nasa.gov and Sanaz Vahidinia at sanaz.vahidinia@nasa.gov. The D.19 ULTRASAT PSP element will be discussed in the ULTRASAT Splinter session at the AAS on 11 January 2023, 9:30–11:30am Pacific Time.

Gamma-ray Burst

On Sunday, Oct. 9, 2022, a pulse of intense radiation swept through the solar system so exceptional that astronomers quickly dubbed it the BOAT – the brightest of all time. The source was a gamma-ray burst (GRB), the most powerful class of explosions in the universe. Read more.
