Summary

The NASA Headquarters has posted a grant opportunity titled "ROSES 2023: D.18 XRISM General Observer - Cycle 1". This grant is in the category of Science and Technology and other Research and Development. The grant does not require cost sharing or matching. The grant is open to eligible applicants, which include organizations affiliated with U.S. institutions. The grant is for the XRISM General Observer program, specifically for Cycle 1. The program is seeking proposals that justify the science case given the closed Gate Valve and shift in energy band of the Resolve instrument. The due date for Type-1 (Phase-1) observing proposals is April 4, 2024, and they must be submitted via ARK/RPS by 4:30 pm eastern time. Type-2 proposals must be submitted via NSPIRES by 11:59 pm eastern time on the same date. The grant provides funding for research and technology in space and Earth sciences supported by the NASA Science Mission Directorate. For more information and to access the full text of the announcement, please visit the following link: ROSES 2023 Grant Announcement. For any questions or inquiries, please contact Sanaz Vahidinia, Astrophysics Division, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters, at 202-510-1982 or sanaz.vahidinia@nasa.gov.

Description

Proposers must retrieve the instructions document (zip file) associated with the application package for this opportunity as there is at least one required form that must be attached to the submitted proposal package. Proposers are reminded that only Type-2 proposals can be submitted here. Type-1 proposals must be submitted to the ARK/RPS. NOTICE: Amended January 11, 2024. The Resolve instrument’s Gate Valve (X-ray aperture door) has not opened after multiple attempts thereby blocking soft X-rays, shifting Resolve’s energy band from 0.3 - 12 keV to 1.7 - 12 keV, and lowering the effective area. While the XRISM team will continue to assess different approaches to opening the Gate Valve, the General Observer Cycle-1 program will be carried out with the closed Gate Valve configuration. Since the Resolve instrument’s effective area is less than anticipated, longer exposures may be needed for some observations, which will affect the number of proposals selected for Cycle 1, leaving the distribution of funding for Type-1 vs. Type-2 proposals less certain. Proposals must justify the science case given the closed Gate Valve and shift in energy band. The relevant response function files and technical information are provided at https://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/xrism/ The due date remains the same: Type-1 (Phase-1) observing proposals are to be submitted via ARK/RPS by 4:30 pm eastern time and Type-2 proposals are to be submitted via NSPIRES by 11:59 pm eastern time April 4, 2024. New text is in bold and deleted text is struck through. NOTICE: Amended December 15, 2023. This Amendment delays the due date for this program element. Notices of intent are not requested, and proposals are now due April 4, 2024. Also, the planning start date in Section 3 has been delayed to August 1, 2023. NOTICE: Amended December 12, 2023. This Amendment presents a new program element in ROSES-2023. Notices of intent are not requested, and proposals are due March 21, 2024. There are two types of proposals with different page limits, contents, and submission procedures: Type-1 Phase-1 proposals are due at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time via ARK/RPS whereas Type-2 proposals must be submitted by the proposing organization via NSPIRES by 11:59 pm. XRISM General Observer (GO) proposals, both Type-1 and Type-2, will be evaluated via dual-anonymous peer review. Proposals must be prepared following the guidelines in Section 2.1 or 2.2 and in the appropriate "….DAPR Instructions" document posted to the right. Due to the nature of the proposed investigations, XRISM GO proposals are not required to include an "Open Science and Data Management Plan". The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate (SMD) released its annual omnibus Research Announcement (NRA), Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) – 2023 (OMB Approval Number 2700-0092, CFDA Number 43.001) on February 14, 2023. In this case "omnibus" means that this NRA has many individual program elements, each with its own due dates and topics. All together these cover the wide range of basic and applied supporting research and technology in space and Earth sciences supported by SMD. Awards will be made as grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, and inter- or intra-agency transfers, depending on the nature of the work proposed, the proposing organization, and/or program requirements. However, most extramural research awards deriving from ROSES will be grants, and many program elements of ROSES specifically exclude contracts, because contracts would not be appropriate for the nature of the work solicited. The typical period of performance for an award is three years, but some programs may allow up to five years and others specify shorter periods. In most cases, organizations of every type, Government and private, for profit and not-for-profit, domestic and foreign (with some caveats), may submit proposals without restriction on teaming arrangements. Tables listing the program elements and due dates (Tables 2 and 3), a table that provides a very top level summary of proposal contents (Table 1), and the full text of the ROSES-2023 "Summary of Solicitation", may all be found NSPIRES at http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2023. This synopsis is associated with one of the individual program elements within ROSES, but this is a generic summary that is posted for all ROSES elements. For specific information on this particular program element download and read the PDF of the text of this program element by going to Tables 2 or 3 of this NRA at http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2023table2 and http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2023table3, respectively, click the title of the program element of interest, a hypertext link will take you to a page for that particular program element. On that page, on the right side under "Announcement Documents" the link on the bottom will be to the PDF of the text of the call for proposals. For example, if one were interested in The Lunar Data Analysis Program (NNH23ZDA001N-LDAP) one would follow the link to the NSPIRES page for that program element and then to read the text of the call one would click on “C.8 Lunar Data Analysis (.pdf)” to download the text of the call. If one wanted to set it into the context of the goals, objectives and know the default rules for all elements within Appendix C, the planetary science division, one might download and read “C.1 Planetary Science Research Program Overview (.pdf)” from that same page. While the letters and numbers are different for each element within ROSES (A.12, B.7, etc.) the basic configuration is always the same, e.g., the letter indicates the Science Division (A is Earth Science, B is Heliophysics etc.) and whatever the letter, #1 is always the division overview. Frequently asked questions for ROSES are posted at http://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/faqs. Questions concerning general ROSES-2023 policies and procedures may be directed to Max Bernstein, Lead for Research, Science Mission Directorate, at sara@nasa.gov, but technical questions concerning specific program elements should be directed to the point(s) of contact for that particular element, who may be found either at the end of the individual program element in the summary table of key information or on the web list of topics and points of contact at: http://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/program-officers-list. Not all program elements are known at the time of the release of ROSES. To be informed of new program elements or amendments to this NRA, proposers may subscribe to: (1) The SMD mailing lists (by logging in at http://nspires.nasaprs.com and checking the appropriate boxes under "Account Management" and "Email Subscriptions"), (2) The ROSES-2023 blog feed for amendments, clarifications, and corrections to at http://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/ROSES-2023, and (3) The ROSES-2023 due date Google calendars (one for each science division). Instructions are at https://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/library-and-useful-links (link from the words due date calendar).
