A major goal of NASA's Hurricane Science Research Program (HSRP) is to better understand the physical processes that control hurricane intensity change. We define intensity change broadly, including the intensification of a tropical disturbance into a tropical cyclone, further intensification into a hurricane, including the more specific case of rapid intensification, and significant decreases in intensity. Important general science questions that the HSRP seeks to answer include: This amendment presents a new opportunity in Appendix A.44, the Hurricane Science Research Program (HSRP). The due date for Notices of Intent is Tuesday, November 15, 2011. The due date for proposals is Friday, January 6, 2012. Tables 2 and 3 of the Summary of Solicitation for this NRA have been updated to reflect this change On or about October 5, 2011, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2011" (NNH11ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ (select "Solicitations" then "Open Solicitations" then "NNH11ZDA001N"). You can now track amendments, clarifications, and corrections to ROSES and subscribe to an RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2011 Questions concerning A.44 HSRP may be addressed to Ramesh K.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requests proposals for Community Responses to Human Health Threats from Climate Change in Urban Areas. Work shall include identification of how local decision-makers respond to change, including acute events; what decision-makers view as their vulnerabilities to climate change; development of an evidence-based set of social indicators for climate vulnerability; creation of an in-depth assessment of what constitutes vulnerability, including measures of social capital, social networks, social capacity, education, and awareness of risks; measurement of the effectiveness of outreach and public education measures regarding risks; and assessment of the effects of new programs by local and federal programs. Responses due 10/15/11. For more info, contact Bradley Austin at Austin.bradley@epa.gov or go to: http://www.epa.gov/oamhpod1/admin_placement/ordresponses/index.htm. Refer to Sol# RFQ-DC-11-00088.

The Engineering Design and Innovation program supports research leading to design theory and to tools and methods that enable implementation of the principles of design theory in the practice of design across the full spectrum of engineered products. The program focus is on gaining an understanding of the basic processes and phenomena underlying a holistic, life-cycle view of design where the total system life-cycle context recognizes the need for advanced understanding of the identification and definition of preferences, analysis of alternatives, effective accommodation of uncertainty in decision-making, and the relationship between data and knowledge in a digitally-supported process. The program funds advances in basic design theory, tools, and software to implement design theory and new design methods that span multiple domains, such as design for the environment and for manufacturability. Additional information can be found online at http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=13340&WT.mc_id=USNSF_39&WT.mc_ev=click. The current proposal window closes on October 1, 2011. The point of contact for this opportunity is Dr. Christina L. Bloebaum at (703) 292-8330 or cbloebau@nsf.gov.

The goals of the Nancy Grace Roman Technology Fellowship (RTF) program in Astrophysics are to give early career researchers the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to lead astrophysics flight instruments/projects and become principal investigators (PIs) of future astrophysics missions; to develop innovative technologies that have the potential to enable major scientific breakthroughs; and to foster new talent by putting early-career instrument builders on a trajectory towards long-term positions.

To be eligible for an RTF award, proposal PIs must: 1. Be a recent Ph.D. recipient (no more than seven years before the issuance date of this ROSES NRA), 2. Be in an early career position such as a postdoctoral, tenure-track, term civil service, or an equivalent nontenured position, 3) Be a U.S. citizen or have lawful status of permanent residency, 4) Not hold or have held a career civil service tenure or equivalent position, and 5) Not be a current or former recipient of the RTF or a PECASE award.

Notices of Intent to propose are due October 7, 2011, and proposals are due November 18, 2011.

For those interested in sorting through SBIR/STTR solicitations, try the open topic search feature found online at http://www.zyn.com/sbir/. For example, if one were to type in littoral, they would be taken to Navy SBIR 2011.3 Topic N113-175 entitled, “Optical Perception System for Situational Awareness and Contact Detection for Unmanned Surface Vessels.  Topics for this solicitation open on August 29, 2011 and closes on September 28, 2011.  Interested responders may communicate with topic authors up to August 28th. Contact information is provided following a descriptive sketch of the project.
The search system is not perfect, so exercise some caution.  By typing in words such as acoustic, burial, geolocation, and weather, interesting STTR topics should have been identified too. The below topics, which relate to UNO research thrusts, were found by searching the specific Navy STTR solicitation. See if you can find the below topics using http://www.zyn.com/sbir/.
N11A-T012 Emitter Geolocation Enhancements for Time-Sensitive Targeting and Naval Battlespace Awareness
N11A-T017 Underwater Sensor System Autonomous Burial and Operation
N11A-T026 Low cost acoustic transmitter
N11A-T036 Weather and Environmental Software Tool for System Requirements Investigation
