Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


The National Science Foundation (NSF), through the Directorate for Engineering, the Directorate for Geosciences, and the Office of Polar Programs, announces a broad interdisciplinary program of research and education in the area of advanced sensor development. This solicitation seeks to advance fundamental knowledge in engineering of materials, concepts and designs for new sensors; networked sensor systems in a distributed environment; terrestrial, atmospheric, and aquatic environmental analysis; the integration of sensors into engineered systems; and the interpretation and use of sensor data in decision-making processes. The Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences, the Directorate for Education and Human Resources, and the Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences plan to participate in the reviews and identify proposals of mutual interest and may provide co-funding for programs of high quality that meet their programmatic requirements.

Please note that this is a much narrower solicitation than its predecessor, NSF 04-522. Proposals outside the scope of the topical areas described in this solicitation are subject to return without review.
