Astrophysics Biennial Technology Report and Tech Gaps Announcements

The Cosmic Origins (COR), Exoplanet Exploration (ExEP), and Physics of the Cosmos (PCOS) Program Offices have just completed a new technology gap prioritization cycle, informed by the Decadal Survey on Astronomy and Astrophysics, “Pathways to Discovery in Astronomy and Astrophysics for the 2020s.”

The outcome of this exercise is a new joint Astrophysics Technology Gap List [PDF], which divides the 57 Astrophysics technology gaps into five priority tiers. This gap list and updates on the current state of Astrophysics technology development and infusions are presented in the 2022 Astrophysics Biennial Technology Report (ABTR), now available through the Program Office technology webpage.
