SYNOPSIS

The Advanced Technologies and Instrumentation (ATI) program provides grants to support the development and construction of state-of-the-art astronomical detectors and instruments for the visible, infrared, submillimeter, and radio regions of the spectrum. 

Successful proposals will involve the application of new hardware and software technology and/or innovative techniques in astronomical research in any of a broad range of fields, including (but not limited to) imaging instruments and spectrometers, semiconducting and superconducting detector arrays for astronomy, precision radial velocity hardware, polarization measurement hardware and techniques, correlator hardware, interferometric imaging, and adaptive optics. 

Instrumentation projects should be driven by clearly articulated scientific goals.  All proposals to the ATI program should include a task implementation plan with milestones, schedules, and costs.

Proposals for astronomical instrumentation may alternatively be submitted to the NSF-wide Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) program.  Additional information about that program can be obtained by visiting the MRI Solicitation at (http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5260).
