  I'm glad you posted this to ESIP.  These kinds of challenges have been very successful in a number of areas in getting high-quality, novel products and results for very small outlays of money.  It might be something worth thinking about for ESIP.  It's actually similar to our Funding Fridays, but would perhaps be open to a much broader community.
  (We had Peter Corbett, who specializes in running these kinds of challenges, give a talk here at GSFC about it: http://istcolloq.gsfc.nasa.gov/Fall2010/speaker/corbett.html).
