The Small, Innovative Missions for Planetary Exploration (SIMPLEx) call supports the formulation and development of science investigations that require a spaceflight mission that can be accomplished using small spacecraft. All proposed investigations must be responsive to the goals of the Planetary Science Division as described in the2014 Science Mission Directorate Science Plan available at:
Proposed investigations may target any body in the Solar System except for the Earth and Sun, in order to advance the objectives outlined in the Science Plan. Investigations of extra solar planets are not solicited in this NRA.
Step-1 proposals are due January 13, 2015, and Step-2 proposals are due March 13, 2015.
