ROSES-14 Amendment 4 narrows the range of entry technology readiness levels eligible for submission to C.12, Planetary Instrument Concepts for the Advancement of Solar System Observations (PICASSO). The 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 to the point where they may be proposed in response to the Maturation of Instruments for Solar System Exploration (MatISSE) Program, C.13 of ROSES. Therefore, the proposed instrument system or advanced components must address specific scientific objectives of likely future planetary science missions. The PICASSO Program is intended to enable timely and efficient technology infusion into the MatISSE Program and eventually into flight missions. As such, the entry technology readiness level (TRL) that PICASSO supports is 1-3. Proposals where the entry TRL is 4 or higher are not appropriate for the PICASSO, but should be submitted to C.13, the MatISSE program. The due dates remain unchanged. Step-1 proposals are due , and Step-2 proposals are due . On or about , this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2014" (NNH14ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at:http://nasascience.nasa.gov/
