The Planetary Data Archiving, Restoration, and Tools (PDART) program solicits proposals to: generate higher-order data products; archive and restore data sets or products; create or consolidate reference databases; generate new reference information, such as laboratory measurements; and digitize data. Beginning once again this year, the PDART program will be soliciting proposals for the development or validation of software tools.
The objective of this program element is to increase the amount and quality of digital information and data products available for planetary science research and exploration. Although it is expected that a small amount of data analysis, interpretation, or modeling may be performed to validate any generated products, this program element does not accept proposals in which the main focus is hypothesis-based planetary science.
This program element does not have a proposal due date. Proposals may be submitted at any time, pending certain eligibility timing issues related to resubmissions and duplicate proposal avoidance (see the program element text and appropriate Division Overview appendix (e.g., Appendix A.1, B.1, C.1, etc.)). The date shown above of 3/29/2024 is the last day that proposals may be submitted.
