Technology under Laboratory Analysis of Returned Samples (LARS) Project

Metadata Updated: May 2, 2019

Tasks supported by LARS include those that seek to develop new analytical instrumentation or combinations of analytical instruments, or new components of analytical instruments, leading to significant improvements in the precision, resolution, or sensitivity of measurements compared to the existing state of the art. Also supported is the development of new analytical techniques for existing instrumentation that push the limits of current technology, for example, by the elimination of analytical interferences or contamination problems. Work that addresses the needs of current or selected missions have the highest priority.

LARS supports the development of laboratory instrumentation and advanced analytical techniques, as well as the scientific analysis and analytical work on recently returned planetary samples. Based on analysis of active awards in FY12, the LARS R[HTML_REMOVED]A Lead estimates that $2.8M out of $8.1M, or 34[HTML_REMOVED] of LARS funds, will be spent on technology, developing new laboratory instrumentation and laboratory sample handling and preparation technologies. The amount of funding for technology in future years will depend upon the outcome of future ROSES solicitations, peer reviews, and selections.
