ROSES Strategic Astrophysics Technology opportunity will focus on Astro2020 Recommendations

The ROSES opportunity D.7 Strategic Astrophysics Technology (SAT) opportunity supports the maturation of key technologies for potential infusion in space flight missions. Strongly endorsed by the 2010 Decadal Survey of Astronomy and Astrophysics, the SAT program is a key element of the strategy adopted by the Astrophysics Division in implementing the Astro2010 recommendations (see the Astrophysics Implementation Plan on the NASA Astrophysics Division documents page).

This year, proposals to D.7 SAT must be focused exclusively on the technology needs of missions recommended by the 2020 Decadal Survey of Astronomy and Astrophysics (Astro2020) report, which will be issued shortly. Topics focused on technology development relevant to NASA Astrophysics but not pertaining to the missions recommended by the 2020 Decadal Survey may be submitted to D.3 Astrophysics Research and Analysis (APRA).

The due dates and full text of D.7 SAT will be released in a subsequent amendment following the release of the 2020 Decadal Survey of Astronomy and Astrophysics. The due date for SAT proposals will be no fewer than 90 days after the release of that amendment.

We do not anticipate that the Astrophysics Technology Gaps List will be updated in time for SAT this year, so proposers should simply refer to the text of D.7 SAT once it is released to see which projects are in scope this year.

Please direct general questions concerning this program to Mario R. Perez at mario.perez@nasa.gov, and PCOS-specific questions to Valerie Connaughton at valerie.connaughton@nasa.gov.
