Technologies for Sensing, Analyzing, and Utilizing Novel Subsurface Signals in Support of the Subsurface Technology and Engineering (SubTER)

see notice in PIVOT

The purpose of this FOA is to competitively solicit and award research and development projects that will, deploy and validate prototype carbon storage Monitoring, Verification and Accounting technologies in an operational field environment and identify and validate new subsurface signals to characterize and image the subsurface advancing the state of knowledge in geothermal exploration.

Enhancing Access to the Radio Spectrum (EARS)

see PIVOT notice

The National Science Foundation’s Directorates for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS), Engineering (ENG), and Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) are coordinating efforts to identify bold newconcepts with the potential to contribute to significant improvements in the efficiency of radio spectrum utilization, protection of passive sensing services, and in the ability for traditionally underserved Americans to benefit from current and future wireless-enabled goods and services. EARS seeks to fund innovative collaborative research that transcends the traditional boundaries of existing programs, such as research that spans disciplines covered by two or more of the participating NSF directorates.

While NSF funds a variety of wireless research and development within specific disciplines across the Foundation, the EARS program targets innovative and potentially transformational research that carefully considers the interplay of science, engineering, technology, applications, economics, social sciences, and public policy on spectrum efficiency and access. A unique merit review criterion for the EARS program is how a proposed research endeavor addresses the program’s objectives across two or more disciplinary boundaries. Such considerations should be addressed through substantive components of the proposed research. The solicitation seeks effective collaborations in areas where such interdisciplinary collaboration is presently uncommon. The proposer is asked to show how the disciplines will be integrated in the context of the project as part of the research plan in the Project Description.
