NASA Research Announcement (NRA) - Appendix C: NNH15ZTT001N-15PSI_C
NASA has released the next appendix of the NASA Research Announcement (NRA) titled “Use of the NASA Physical Sciences Informatics System”.
The NRA solicits ground-based research proposals – both experimental and numerical studies – utilizing experimental data residing in NASA’s Physical Sciences Informatics (PSI) System.
This online database provides investigators access to the raw and processed experimental data from past and current physical science International Space Station flight experiments. In this way, the NRA promotes rapid, multiple investigations resulting
in more scientists participating in ISS research. The next call for proposals solicits proposals in the five research areas – Combustion Science, Complex Fluids, Fluid Physics, Fundamental Physics and Materials Science – for which eligible experimental
data will be available in the PSI by the proposal due date of December 15, 2016. At the time of the release of the Appendix, 38 investigations are eligible for this NRA. The call is open to two types of investigators: established researchers and graduate students.
The typical awards will be $75,000 to $100,000 per year for up to two years.
NASA plans to conduct a proposers’ conference via WebEx at 1 pm Eastern Time on October 5, 2016. To participate, navigate to https://nasa.webex.com/ and enter the meeting information: meeting number: 994 156 009 / meeting password: $Athena-2016.
