|Mars Data Analysis Program (MDAP)
|The ROSES 2022 Mars Data Analysis Program (MDAP)  Appendix C.9
|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 takes proposals via a two-step proposal submission process described in Section 2 of Appendix C.1 The Planetary Science Division Research Program Overview.
|Mandatory Step-1 proposals are due September 7, 2022, and Step-2 proposals are due November 15, 2022.
|Proposals to this program element are subject to a relevance requirement in addition to and that supersedes those detailed in the ROSES Summary of Solicitation, see Section 2.2 of this program element. Proposals that do not fulfill these requirements may be returned without review.
The objective of the Mars Data Analysis Program (MDAP) is to enhance the scientific return from missions to Mars
conducted by NASA and other space agencies. These include, but are not limited to, the following missions:
Mars Pathfinder (MPF), Mars Global Surveyor (MGS), Mars Odyssey (MO), Mars Exploration Rovers (MER), Mars Express (MEX), Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), Phoenix (PHX), Mars Science Laboratory (MSL), Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN), ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO), InSight, and Mars 2020 (the Perseverance rover and Ingenuity helicopter).Any proposal may incorporate the investigation of data from more than one mission. MDAP broadens scientific participation in the analysis of mission data sets and funds high-priority areas of research that support planning for future Mars missions. MDAP supports scientific investigations of Mars using publicly available (released) data.

|The following Discipline Nodes also have Mars information pages:
Cartography and Imaging Sciences Node
|Ancillary data (SPICE files) for Mars can be obtained from the NAIF Node
|Refer to ROSES program element C.1, Section 4, for a detailed list of the data and astromaterials resources, and facilities available to proposers to this program element, and how to use them.
|For proposals that contain mission data analysis, planetary spacecraft mission data to be used in proposed investigations must be available in the Planetary Data System (PDS) or equivalent publicly accessible archive at least 30 days prior to the Step-2 proposal submission date. Spacecraft data that have not been placed in the public domain may not be proposed for use in MDAP investigations. The calendar of record for data released in the PDS is the PDS Data Release Calendar
|Please note that Data Management Plans (DMPs) are mandatory for this Program Element. See Appendix C.1, Section 3.7 for requirements. 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.
|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.
