NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Washington, selected the agency’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, and Remote Sensing Systems, Santa Rosa, for grants to support Earth-Sun System science goals and remote sensing programs.

The maximum Jet Propulsion grants’ amount is $3,245,306 and for Remote Sensing Systems, $1,101,440.

NASA solicited proposals for a new Ocean Vector Winds Science Team to support the analysis and interpretation of ocean vector winds and other applications derived from Earth-observing satellite missions carrying scatterometers and polarimetric radiometers.

The research also supports the Vision for Space Exploration, NASA’s long- term plan to return astronauts to the moon and extend exploration to Mars and beyond.
