PICASSO is now a program with no-due-dates (NoDD). For more information about NoDD in PSD, visit: https://science.nasa.gov/researchers/NoDD

The last day to submit proposals to ROSES-2022 NoDD solicitations is Mar 29, 2023.

The Planetary Instrument Concepts for the Advancement of Solar System Observations (PICASSO) Program supports the development of spacecraft-based instrument systems that show promise for use in future planetary missions. The goal of the program is to conduct planetary and astrobiology science instrument feasibility studies, concept formation, proof of concept instruments, and advanced component technology development (technology readiness levels (TRL) 1 – 3) to the point where they may be proposed in response to the Maturation of Instruments for Solar System Exploration (MatISSE) Program.
