WoWTALK VI was held on December 5, 2017.
The dean’s office will invite faculty volunteers to share their successful proposals.
The ADR (Associate Dean for Research) will collect the proposals from email@example.com. Each colleague who contributes (referred to as “Contributors” here after) can redact their proposal to remove sensitive information, or have dean’s office assist with this. The redacted copy will be password protected so that it can be viewed, but no text or image can be copied electronically.
Any CCAS colleague who requests (referred to as “Requester” here after) a proposal can submit their information via our CCAS Sample Proposal Requesting Form.
The ADR will inform the Contributor with the name of the Requester before releasing the proposal.
The Contributor may request for a copy of the final proposal from the Requester before submission. This will help prevent plagiarism and allow the Requester to receive valuable comments from the Contributor.
Other components of this system may include various pieces of the proposal, e.g. Postdoc Mentoring Plan. Those samples can be deposited in a Google drive shared with all CCAS faculty.

Suborbital Flight Testing and Flight Experiments with CubeSat Payloads
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Ames Research Center (ARC) is requesting broad community input under a Request for Information (RFI) to determine interest in using high altitude aircraft as a means for flight testing and flight experiments with CubeSat science payloads. The two primary use cases of interest are flight testing CubeSat instruments intended for orbital use and airborne flight experiments that leverage CubeSat technologies for earth observing instruments.
As background for the RFI, the NASA Airborne Science Program (ASP), managed under the Earth Science Division (ESD) within the Science Mission Directorate (SMD), operates a fleet of highly modified aircraft that support NASA satellite missions, technology development, and science investigations. The primary objectives of the program include supporting satellite calibration and validation, new sensor development, process studies of the Earth system, and developing the next generation of scientists and engineers. Additional information on the ASP can be found at: https://airbornescience.nasa.g
With this RFI, the NASA Airborne Science Program is exploring community interest in having NASA support the use of CubeSat science payloads in the Airborne Science Program.
The RFI is for information purposes only.
The due date for responses is November 21, 2017 (3:00pm Pacific).
Please see the RFI at the following:
