Earth Venture- 1. ” The NASA Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Earth Science Division’s Earth Venture (EV) is a new element within the Earth System Science Pathfinder (ESSP) Program.

Earth Venture consists of a series of regularly solicited, competitively selected Earth Science investigations as recommended by the recent National Research Council’s decadal survey in Earth science, Earth Science and Applications from Space:

Each suborbital Venture-class investigation must have a life cycle of less than or equal to 5 years and total investigation cost not to exceed $30 million.

NASA intends that funds provided through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 will be utilized to partially fund contracts for selected proposals.

Participation is open to all categories of organizations (U. S. and non-U.S), including educational, industrial, and not-for-profit organizations, Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs), NASA Centers, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and other Government agencies.

Upon the release date, the full text of the solicitation will be available electronically at .

Notices of Intent to propose are due September 2, 2009, and proposals are due November 6, 200 9.
