>Please note the following excerpt from the NRA:
>"Proposals will be evaluated in two steps.  Step 1 proposals may be 
>submitted at any time during the period ending at 1:30 pm, PDT, on April 
>28, 2003.  Step 2 proposals will be due no later than 45 days following 
>notification from NASA of the Step 1 proposal review results and 
>Step 1 proposals may be up to 5 pages of text, single-spaced, with type no 
>smaller than 12-pt., including abstract and references.  Step 2 proposals 
>may be up to fifteen pages of text, single-spaced, with type no smaller 
>than 12-pt., including abstract and references.  Detailed information on 
>process as well as proposal format and content is provided in Appendix A. "
>Please forward the message to anyone you think may be interested in this 
>>Please consider this opportunity to submit proposals and participate in 
>>the program.  The NRA is expected within the next two weeks.  A synopsis 
>>has been posted at the URL given below.
>>The call covers the Intelligent Systems Project within the Computing, 
>>Information and Communications Technologies (CICT) Program.  There are 
>>three major technical areas - Automated Reasoning (automated data 
>>processing and on -boards science, etc.), Intelligent Data Understanding 
>>(Data Mining, Knowledge Discovery, etc.), and Human Centered Computing 
>>(efficient ways to order, obtain and use data).
>>The PIs in this program generally have academic standing as researchers 
>>in Computational Sciences.  The program encourages partnering to give 
>>these researchers access to challenging problems in the Earth Sciences 
>>field that will drive computer science research.  Partnering is also 
>>encouraged to cause infusion of basic research and technology from the 
>>Computational Sciences into missions supported by the NASA Enterprises.

>>NASA/Ames Research Center, JA:M/S 241-1, Moffett Field, CA 94035-1000
>>The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Ames Research
>>Center (ARC) intends to solicit basic research proposals for a set of
>>advanced information technology associated with system intellignce that
>>not exist today in support of the Intelligent Systems (IS) Program. This
>>solicts truly novel approaches to solving future NASA problems, rather
>>refinements of existing techniques. NASA has developed a bold vision
>>focuses on robotic exploration of deep space to understand the origin of
>>life, combined human-robotic exploration of Mars, safe and cost
>>operation of the Space Shuttle and follow-on launch vehicles to orbit,
>>use of Earth orbiting satellites to establish cause and effect
>>associated with such important phenomena as global warming, and high
>>quality, cost effective science from the International Space Station.
>>The IS Program intends to solicit proposals for research in the
>>five (5) areas: (1) Automated Reasoning; (2) Human-Centered Computing;
>>Intelligent Data Understanding; (4) Revolutionary Computing; and (5)
>>Evolvable Systems. Participation in this NRA is open to indutry,
>>institutions, nonprofit organizations and U.S. Government agencies.
>>Participation is also open to foreign organizations on a cooperative,
>>no-exchange of funds basis. The NASA Research Announcement (NRA) will be
>>available on or about late February 2003 via the Internet. The NRA will
>>contain submittal instructions for proposals.
>>Obtain additonal programmatic information from Dr. Joseph
>>Coughlan,Joseph.C.Coughlan at nasa.gov or is.arc.nasa.gov
>>All qualified responsible sources may submit a proposal which shall be
>>considered by the agency.
>>An ombudsman has been appointed. See NASA Specific Note "B".
>>The solicitation and any documents related to this procurement will be
>>available over the Internet. These documents will be in Microsoft Office
>>format and will reside on a World-Wide Web (WWW) server, which may be
