Hosted Payload Website

The Common Instrument Interface (CII) Hosted Payload Opportunity (HPO) database provides information regarding future Earth satellites containing sufficient breadth and depth so that NASA Earth Science Flight Programs and prospective Earth Venture-Instrument proposers can be successful when matching instruments with HPOs.

Site Notice

The Earth System Science Pathfinder (ESSP) Program Office has chartered the Common Instrument Interface (CII) team to establish and maintain a Hosted Payload Opportunity database.

For additional information on the CII Project, please visit our Home page.

NASA released the final Annoucement of Opportunity for Earth Venture Instrument-2 on August 7, 2013. CII will not publish any updated database entries until NASA announces the results of the selection process.
