The Instrument Incubator Program (IIP) funds innovative technologies that lead directly to new Earth observing instruments, sensors, and systems in support of SMD’s ESD. The technologies and measurement concepts developed under the IIP may extend up through field demonstrations, with a longer-term aim for infusion into future ESD research and flight programs.
The goals of the IIP are to research, develop and, demonstrate new measurement technologies that enable new or greatly enhance Earth observation measurements and reduce the risk, cost, size, mass, and development time of Earth observing instruments. This program element requests proposals for technology development activities aimed specifically at: (1) development and demonstration of new innovative Earth Science remote sensing instruments; and (2) demonstration of new instrument concepts and/or measurements.
Notices of Intent are requested by May 31, 2016, and proposals are due July 11, 2016. Read More...
