USRA offers Internal Research and Development funds for further investigations and developments for its scientists. These IRAD funds allow for exploration of concepts and ideas consistent with USRA’s core values, purpose, and mission. This year, thirteen proposals from across all USRA institutes and programs were submitted and reviewed by an internal panel; subsequently, recommendations were forwarded to the Senior Vice President of Science and the Senior Vice President of Technology R&D. This year, the following GESTAR scientists received funding for their proposals:

PI: Oreste Reale/Thomas Fauchez/Samuel Teinturier, “Designing an Observing System Simulation Experiment (OSSE) Framework for Mars”;

PI: Katherine (Emma) Knowland/Christoph Keller, “Third Party Solutions to Air Pollution”; and,

PI: Assaf Anyamba/Radina Soebiyanto, “Machine Learning, Climate Variability, and Disease Dynamics”.

Congratulations to these awardees! For those interested in future opportunities, note that the IRAD funds are aligned with the fiscal years and a call for proposals likely will be circulated company-wide in summer 2020.
