|Cassini Data Analysis Program (CDAP)
|The ROSES 2022 Cassini Data Analysis Program Appendix C.10
|Notice: Proposals submitted to this program will be evaluated using a dual-anonymous review process. Proposals must be prepared according to the guidelines in Section 4.2 of this Program Element and in the associated "Guidelines for Anonymous Proposals" document under "Other Documents" on the NSPIRES page for this program element.
|This program element uses a two-step proposal submission process described in Section 2 of C.1 The Planetary Science Division Research Program Overview.
|Mandatory Step-1 proposals are due May 5, 2022, and Step-2 proposals are due July 7, 2022.
|The objective of the Cassini Data Analysis program(CDAP) is to enhance the scientific return of the Cassini mission by broadening the scientific participation in the analysis and interpretation of the data returned by the mission. Other mission and nonmission data sets may be used with these data, but all proposals must require the use of data from the Cassini mission.
|Mission data to be used in proposed work must be available in the Planetary Data System (PDS) or an equivalent, publicly accessible archive at least 30 days prior to the Step-2 due date. Spacecraft data that have not been placed in such archives may not be proposed for use. The calendar of record for data released in the PDS is the PDS Data Release Calendar.
|Proposals submitted to this Program Element must include a Data Management Plan (see Appendix C.1, Section 3.7). The Individual Proposer's Archive Guide (IPAG) and Strategy for writing a good data management plan for a ROSES proposal are available on the PPI website.

|The following Discipline Nodes also have Cassini information pages:
Cartography and Imaging Sciences Node
Ring-Moon Systems Node
Small Bodies Node
|Ancillary data (SPICE files) for Cassini can be obtained from the NAIF Node
|Proposals must demonstrate that all data, including higher-order data products, that would result from the research will be made publicly available, following the guidelines described in Section 3.7 of C.1 Planetary Science Overview ("Data Management Plans and Archiving"). New data products, including maps, improved calibrations, etc., must be submitted to the PDS, the USGS, or another appropriate archive, by the end of the funded research period.
|The proposal must include a letter from the manager of the appropriate PDS data node. For additional information, refer to the PDS Proposer's Archiving Guide at https://pds.nasa.gov/home/proposers/proposing-programs.shtml.
|Proposals submitted to this Program Element must follow all formatting requirements that are described in program element C.1 and Section IV(b)ii of the ROSES Summary of Solicitation.
