Important Information for Proposers
ATTENTION: Proposers using the Collaborators and Other Affiliations template for more than 10 senior project personnel will encounter proposal print preview issues. Please see the Collaborators and Other Affiliations Information website for updated guidance.
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 18-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 29, 2018. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 18-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
Current but no Longer Receiving Proposals
The Advanced Technologies and Instrumentation (ATI) program provides grants to support the development and construction of state-of-the-art astronomical detectors and instruments for the visible, infrared, submillimeter, and radio regions of the spectrum.
Successful proposals will involve the application of new hardware and software technology and/or innovative techniques in astronomical research in any of a broad range of fields, including (but not limited to) imaging instruments and spectrometers, semiconducting and superconducting detector arrays for astronomy, precision radial velocity hardware, polarization measurement hardware and techniques, correlator hardware, interferometric imaging, and adaptive optics.
Instrumentation projects should be driven by clearly articulated scientific goals. All proposals to the ATI program should include a task implementation plan with milestones, schedules, and costs.
Proposals for astronomical instrumentation may alternatively be submitted to the NSF-wide Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program. Additional information about that program can be obtained by visiting the MRI Solicitation at (http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5260).
