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 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.

UNAVCO can provide resources and capabilities to projects, including:

*  A range of pool equipment including permanent, continuous,  
campaign, and real time kinematic (RTK) GPS systems, permanent real  
time, high rate GPS, Terrestrial Laser Scanners (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 acquisition, configuration and integration; and software  
development services for development of 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 following:

*  Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS, a.k.a. tripod LiDAR)

*  Borehole strainmeter/seismometer, and tiltmeter installations

*  Real-time GPS

*  Polar remote power and communications systems

*  Satellite InSAR data

*  Airborne LiDAR data

Project support, including assistance with proposal planning, may be  
requested at the UNAVCO web site at: http://achaia.unavco.org/support.aspx

Researchers planning to include the use of UNAVCO resources in  
proposals under the current National Science Foundation (NSF)
