The following table gives the key dates for each of the NRAs supported by these pages. The links are to the respective Rings Node support pages.

Program Appendix NOI Due Proposal Due
Cassini DAP (CDAP) C.10 4/3/09 5/1/09
Outer Planets Research (OPR) C.7 8/28/09 11/13/09
Planetary Mission DAP (PMDAP)* C.11 6/5/09 8/14/09
Planetary Atmospheres Program C.6 4/24/09 6/19/09

* PMDAP. While most opportunities for Atmospheres specific data analysis are covered by CDAP and OPR, PMDAP affords a unique opportunity for Atmospheres scientists to propose for the restoration of publically available data sets. Individuals or teams interested in pursuing this opportunity should contact us early for assistence in identifying and obtaining eligible data, and in determining the PDS compliance requirements for the completed deliverables.

Several of the programs include encouragement or requirements to archive the results of the proposed research, contact us to assist with archive planning and incorporating archive planning in proposals.

The following documents will be useful in planning your products

The PDS offers tutorials designed to assist with the early stages of archive planning. Although both are written primarily from a mission perspective, the information they contain is also relevant to proposers to NRAs.
