ROSES-16 Amendment 39: D.6 FERMI GI final text and phase-1 due date change

ROSES-16 Amendment 39: This amendment presents final text and changes the phase-1 proposal due date for the D.6 Fermi Guest Investigator program.

The Fermi Guest Investigator (GI) program solicits proposals for basic research relevant to the Fermi mission. The primary goal of this mission is to perform 20 MeV to >300 GeV gamma-ray measurements over the entire celestial sphere, with sensitivity a factor of 30 or more greater than that obtained by earlier space missions. A secondary goal includes the study of transient gamma-ray sources with energies extending from 8 keV up to 300 GeV.

The Fermi GI program is intended to encourage scientific participation by providing funding to carry out investigations using Fermi data, to conduct correlative observations at other wavelengths, to develop data analysis techniques applicable to the Fermi data, and to carry out theoretical investigations in support of Fermi observations.

Phase-1 proposals are due at 4:30 pm Eastern Time on February 24, 2017, via the RPS website at

On or about October 19, 2016, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2016” (NNH16ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
