Solicitation Pre-proposal Briefing
An informational workshop was held January 24, 2012, 1:00 - 3:00 pm EDT to assist proposers. Guidance was provided for developing quantitative, practical technology milestones for proposed tasks. The workshop was conducted remotely via telecon with briefing charts available via WebEx. The agenda for the briefing is given below. Questions and answers from the briefing are listed as well.
However, the solicitation was amended in February 2012 to announce that proposals will not be solicited for the TDEM science area under the 2011 SAT solicitation (ROSES 2011, Appendix D.8). This step was taken to accommodate changes in the Exoplanet Exploration Program's planned budget outlined in the President's Fiscal Year 2013 budget request. The next opportunity to propose to the TDEM element of the SAT program will be under the ROSES 2012 NRA. This change does not effect proposals selected previously under the TDEM element of the ROSES-2010 SAT solicitation, which will be funded as planned.
