We provide a brief synopsis here; proposers must refer to the call
The Planetary Data Archiving, Restoration, and Tools (PDART)
program is described in Appendix C.4.
See the NSPIRES website.
The Planetary Data Archiving, Restoration and Tools (PDART)
solicits proposals to generate higher-order data products, archive
and restore data sets or products, create or consolidate reference
databases, digitize data, and develop or validate software
For all types of proposals, it is expected that the products of
selected proposals will be made available to the scientific
community via the NASA PDS or equivalent archive. All proposals
will be evaluated on the perceived impact of the new data products
or tools on future planetary science research and exploration.
- Proposals submitted to ROSES-2020 are required to include a data management plan (DMP).
However, unlike for other programs, proposers to this program element will not provide a data
management plan via the NSPIRES cover pages. Instead, that requirement is superseded by instructions
in Appendix C.4 that place more detailed descriptions into the body of the
Scientific/Technical/Management section of proposals.
Additional links within PDS
- For more information about proposing with respect to PDS archiving, see the PDS Engineering Node's Information for Proposers page.
- From that page, follow the link to the Proposers to Individual R&A Programs page which contains links to several additional
resources including one to the Proposer's Archiving Guide, written specifically to support DAP proposers, and links to ROSES
support pages at the individual nodes.
- The PDS NAIF Node and observation geometry.
- SPICE data and software may be obtained from the
NAIF web site. SPICE
data files contain spacecraft and solar system geometry data
necessary to interpret scientific observations from space-based
instruments. The SPICE system also includes a large suite of
software, mostly in the form of subroutines, that users
incorporate in their own application programs to read SPICE
files and to compute derived observation geometry, such as
altitude, latitude/longitude, and lighting angles.
