JPL invites proposals with the intent to provide a study to address a mission concept for a small CubeSat spacecraft up to 3U in size that would be carried aboard the potential Europa Clipper spacecraft, released in the Jovian system and would make measurements at Europa.
This request is open to U.S. Higher Educational Institutions. It is anticipated that up to 10 proposals will be selected, each not to exceed $25K. The performance period is approximately 8 months. The proposal due date is Aug. 18, 2014, 3:00 p.m. PDT. This effort may lead to additional tasks in the future, however, there is no commitment at this time to fly CubeSats on the potential Europa Clipper mission.
Any communication in reference to this RFP should be via email to the attention of Patrick Thompson (Patrick.M.Thompson@jpl.nasa.gov).
