National Institute of Justice
NIJ is seeking applications for funding to conduct research, development, testing, and evaluation activities to help address the geospatial technology needs of State and local criminal justice agencies. This includes application of new technologies to criminal justice purposes that were not developed specifically for criminal justice use. How to Apply: Applications will be submitted through OJP’s Grants Management System (GMS). GMS is a Web-based, data-driven computer application that provides cradle to grave support for the application, award and management of grants at OJP. Applicants should begin the process immediately to meet the GMS registration deadline, especially if this is the first time they have used the system. Complete instructions on how to register and submit an application in GMS can be found at If you experience technical difficulties at any point during this process, please, or call 1–888–549–9901 (option 3), Monday–Friday from 6:00 a.m. to midnight eastern time, except for Federal holidays. OJP highly recommends starting the registration process as early as possible to prevent delays in the application submission by the specified deadline.

Space and Earth Sciences - - NASA Research Opportunities - ROSES-2010 to be released on February 12, 2010

posted Jan 21, 2010, 6:29 PM by T. Mueller


NNH10ZDA001N, entitled "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth
Sciences - 2010 (ROSES-2010)," will be available on or about February
12, 2010, by opening the NASA Research Opportunities homepage at  and then linking through the menu
listings "Solicitations" to "Open Solicitations." This NASA Research
Announcement (NRA) solicits proposals for supporting basic and
applied research and technology across a broad range of Earth and
space science program elements relevant to one or more of the
following NASA Research Programs: Earth Science, Heliophysics,
Planetary Science, and Astrophysics.

This ROSES NRA covers all aspects of basic and applied supporting
research and technology in space and Earth sciences, including, but
not limited to: theory, modeling, and analysis of SMD science data;
aircraft, stratospheric balloon, suborbital rocket, and commercial
reusable rocket investigations; development of experiment techniques
suitable for future SMD space missions; development of concepts for
future SMD space missions; development of advanced technologies
relevant to SMD missions; development of techniques for and the
laboratory analysis of both extraterrestrial samples returned by
spacecraft, as well as terrestrial samples that support or otherwise
help verify observations from SMD Earth system science missions;
determination of atomic and composition parameters needed to analyze
space data, as well as returned samples from the Earth or space;
Earth surface observations and field campaigns that support SMD
science missions; development of integrated Earth system models;
development of systems for applying Earth science research data to
societal needs; and development of applied information systems
applicable to SMD objectives and data.

Awards range from under $100K per year for focused, limited efforts
(e.g., data analysis) to more than $1M per year for extensive
activities (e.g., development of science experiment hardware). The
funds available for awards in each program element offered in this
ROSES NRA range from less than one to several million dollars, which
allow selection from a few to as many as several dozen proposals
depending on the program objectives and the submission of proposals
of merit. Awards will be made as grants, cooperative agreements,
contracts, and inter- or intra-agency transfers depending on the
nature of the proposing organization and/or program requirements. The
typical period of performance for an award is four years, although a
few programs may specify shorter or longer (maximum of five years)
periods. Organizations of every type, domestic and foreign,
Government and private, for profit and not-for-profit, may submit
proposals without restriction on number or teaming arrangements. Note
that it is NASA policy that all investigations involving non-U.S.
organizations will be conducted on the basis of no exchange of funds.

Proposal due dates are scheduled starting on April 30, 2010, and
continue through April 30, 2011. Electronically submitted Notices of
Intent to propose are requested for most program elements, with the
first such due date being March 15, 2010. Electronic submission of
proposals is required by the respective due dates for each program
element, and must be submitted by an authorized official of the
proposing organization. Electronic proposals may be submitted via the
NASA proposal data system NSPIRES or via Every
organization that intends to submit a proposal in response to this
ROSES NRA must be registered with NSPIRES; organizations that intend
to submit proposals via must be registered with
in addition to being registered with NSPIRES. Such registration must
identify the authorized organizational representative(s) who will
submit the electronic proposal. All principal investigators and other
participants (e.g. co-investigators) must be registered in NSPIRES
regardless of submission system. Potential proposers and proposing
organizations are urged to access the system(s) well in advance of
the proposal due date(s) of interest to familiarize themselves with
its structure and enter the requested information.

Details of the solicited programs are given in the Appendices of this
ROSES NRA. Proposal due dates are given in Tables 2 and 3 of this
ROSES NRA. Interested proposers should monitor  or subscribe to the electronic
notification system there for additional new programs or amendments
to this ROSES NRA through February 2011, at which time release of a
subsequent ROSES NRA is planned. A web archive (and RSS feed) for
amendments, clarifications, and corrections to this ROSES NRA will be
available at:

Further information about specific program elements may be obtained
from the individual Program Officers listed in the Summary of Key
Information for each program element in the Appendices of this ROSES
NRA, while questions concerning general ROSES NRA policies and
procedures may be directed to Dr. Max Bernstein, Lead for Research,
