Dear UNAVCO Investigators:

This is a reminder that if you are planning to include UNAVCO support 
for GPS and other resources and services in your proposals you are 
encouraged to contact us prior to submission.  Assistance is available 
for technical planning and budgeting of engineering, equipment, and data 
support services for proposals submitted to relevant programs within the 
Directorate for Geosciences - Earth Science Division and Office of Polar 
Programs.  Please note that new and expanded support is available for 
GPS processing of PI data by the Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO) 
Analysis Centers, terrestrial laser scanning (TLS), borehole 
strainmeters/seismometers, tiltmeters, and real-time GPS. UNAVCO also 
helps investigators plan their broader impacts through independent and 
UNAVCO-related projects.

Some of the upcoming solicitation deadlines include:

EAR/Continental Dynamics - November 15
EAR/Geophysics - December 1
EAR/Tectonics - December 1
OPP/Arctic -- November 18
EAR/ Geomorphology and Land Use Dynamics -- January 16
EAR/Instruments and Facilities -- February 11

Complete listings of active funding opportunities can be found on the on 
the NSF web site.

For EAR: http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_list.jsp?org=EAR
For OPP: http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_list.jsp?org=OPP&ord=date

Researchers planning to include the use of UNAVCO resources in proposals 
under the current National Science Foundation (NSF) solicitations are 
encouraged to contact UNAVCO no later than two (2) weeks prior to the 
proposal due dates.

UNAVCO can provide resources and capabilities to projects, including:

*  A range of pool equipment including permanent, continuous, campaign, 
and kinematic GPS systems, TLS, and communication and power systems hardware

*  Expertise in project management, field engineering, technical support 
and training
*  Equipment depot and laboratory facilities for maintaining repairing, 
testing and deploying equipment
*  Systems integration and software development services for development 
customized systems
*  Logistics services including property tracking and management, 
import/export and shipping
*  Data management and archiving services
*  GPS Processing service by the Plate Boundary Observatory Analysis 
*  Educational workshops and products for a variety of audiences (K-12, 
college level, informal, etc)
*  The RESESS Program (Research Experiences in Solid Earth Science), a 
multiyear, research summer internship
     program to broaden participation in the geosciences.

In addition to the traditional GPS related support described above, we 
would like to make sure the community is aware of new and expanded 
support services and data products available from UNAVCO related to the 

*  Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS, a.k.a. tripod LiDAR)
*  Borehole strainmeter/seismometer, and tiltmeter installations
*  Real-time GPS
*  Satellite InSAR data
*  Airborne LiDAR data

Project support, including proposal planning assistance, may be 
requested through our
