The objective of this program element is to increase the amount and quality of archived data and data products available for planetary science research and exploration and to produce tools that would enable or enhance future scientific investigations. Although it is expected that a small amount of data analysis or modeling may be performed to validate any generated products, this program element does not accept proposals in which the main focus is a scientific investigation.
This amendment makes explicit (via a new version of section 1.5) that this program includes the generation of new reference information. Since the scope of this program has been expanded slightly the schedule for proposal due date has been reset:
Step-1 proposals are now due July 17, 2014
Step-2 proposals are now due September 17, 2014
New text is in bold and deleted text is struck through.
