The Advanced Component Technology (ACT) program seeks proposals for technology development activities leading to new component - and subsystem-level space-based and airborne measurement techniques to be developed in support of the Science Mission Directorate’s Earth Science Division. The ACT program is managed by the NASA’s Earth Science Technology Office (ESTO). ESTO supports the development of a range of advanced technologies to meet future Earth science measurements and activities addressing the full science measurement process, from instruments needed to make observations, to data systems and information product s that make those observations useful. The goals of the ACT program are to research, develop, and demonstrate component - and subsystem -level technology development that: • Enable new Earth observation measurements, and • Reduce the risk, cost, size, volume, mass, and development time of Earth observing instruments .
Deadline: Notice of intent due April 19, 2017. Proposal due June 19, 2017
