New Frontiers Data Analysis Program (NFDAP)
The ROSES 2022   New Frontiers Data Analysis Program (NFDAP)   Appendix C.7
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 2.2 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 continues to solicit proposals via a two-step proposal submission process described in Section 2 of C.1 The Planetary Science Division Research Program Overview.
Step-1 proposals are due September 1, 2022, and Step-2 proposals are due November 3, 2022.
The objective of the New Frontiers Data Analysis Program (NFDAP) is to enhance the scientific return from New Frontiers missions by broadening scientific participation in the analysis and interpretation of data returned by these missions. NFDAP also solicits proposals for the analysis of mission data from the JAXA Hayabusa2 mission, which is not a New Frontiers mission. Other mission and non-mission data sets may be used to supplement spacecraft data in a supporting role, but all proposals must require the use of data from at least one qualifying mission: New Horizons, Juno, OSIRIS-REx, or Hayabusa2.
Proposals must include data-analysis tasks but may also include non-data-analysis tasks that are necessary to interpret the data or enhance its use. Proposals may make use of Hayabusa2 remote-sensing data but may not include any laboratory studies of samples returned to Earth by Hayabusa2.
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. Proposed data products for delivery to the PDS must be clearly described, appropriate time and effort for delivery and ingestion must be budgeted, and the proposal must include a letter from the manager of the appropriate PDS data node. Such letters should be included in the “Expertise and Resources –Not Anonymized” document. For additional information, refer to the PDS Proposer's Archiving guide .
Critical Dates
Step 1 Proposal Due Date Data included in PDS by Step 2 Proposal Due Date
09/01/22 10/04/22 11/03/22
Mission data are available from the Planetary Data System (PDS).
Data available from The Planetary Plasma Interactions (PPI) Node
Other Data Within PDS
The following Discipline Nodes have additional information:
Atmospheres Node
Cartography and Imaging Sciences Node
Ring-Moon Systems Node
Small Bodies Node
Geosciences Node
Ancillary data (SPICE files) can be obtained from the NAIF Node
For the purposes of this solicitation, "data" is understood to include both uncalibrated and calibrated data as well as higher-order data products produced from the mission data. Mission data used in NFDAP investigations 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.
Proposals submitted to this program element must include a Data Management Plan (see program element 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.
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.
